If you’re anything like me, one holiday road trip essential is a fantastic playlist! There’s just something about Christmas music that makes a long ride in the car just a bit more bearable. I’ve compiled a short list of a few of my favorite holiday albums, and I’d love to know YOURS!



1. Harry Connick Jr. – “When My Heart Finds Christmas” and “Harry for the Holidays”

Not ashamed to admit we named our second son after Harry Connick Jr. I absolutely ADORE everything that comes out of this man’s mouth. His Christmas albums are just the right mix of classic holiday favorites and original songs with a jazzy flair.

2. David Lindner – “When the Snow Falls”

Okay, I will admit that I’m a bit biased when it comes to this one….this is my husband’s Christmas album! With a mix of classic carols and original songs, instrumentals and vocals, you’ll find yourself singing along and making your spirit bright. He’s amazing and I’m so excited all of you can enjoy his music now too! You can also find his album on itunes and amazon.

3. Indie Holidays on Pandora

For those of you who tend to get bored listening to just one artist, or are simply looking for something other than the “traditional” carols and songs, you’ll definitely want to check out the Indie Holidays station on Pandora.

4. Time Life Music – Treasury of Christmas

If you like to sing it old-school, you’ll definitely want to pick up this album. This has ALL of the classics, from Bing Crosby belting out White Christmas to Elvis crooning he’ll have a Blue Christmas without you. With Perry Como, Andy Williams, and Julie Andrews, this star-studded collection will have you singing all December long.

5. Steven Curtis Chapman – ANY of his Christmas Albums

I grew up listening to Steven Curtis Chapman, and he is my  husband’s all-time favorite, so these albums are something we can agree on. If you are looking for music that is more about Jesus than Santa Claus, you’ll definitely want to check out any of SCC’s Christmas albums.

6. Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album

Call me a Gleek, but I love these albums! There are two out right now, and the third will release on December 11th!
We ALL love to rock out in the car on our holiday road trips.
