Biography

"At age 9 I picked up a guitar and this music is a reflection of my entire musical journey. From sitting in a room listening to Stevie Ray and Jimmy Vaughan play, to my dad taking me to hear the blues, to sitting in an all black church with Loretta Lynn's bass singer, singing at Tammy Wynette and Carl Perkins's memorials, playing guitar on stage with U2 and watching my other ...

Product Description

For this release, Wynonna eloquently delivers soulful, contemporary renditions of her favourite traditional Christmas songs. She has also reunited with the powerhouse production team of Brent Maher, the producer responsible for the mega-hits and Grammys awarded to The Judds, and Don Potter, musical arranger and signature guitarist for many of The Judds and Wynonna's solo projects. Included on this timeless Christmas album are classic staples such as "White Christmas" and "Winter Wonderland", also Wynonna's children join her for the first time ever, singing on "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." "I take great comfort in tradition, and I have always loved the season of Christmas," Wynonna says of her newest release. "What the spirit of Christmas means to me is faith, family and fellowship. This record reminds me of everything that I loved as a kid and continue to love about the timeless, classic music of the most wonderful time of the year." Wynonna will be performing at this year's Nobel Peace Prize Concert on December 10th in Oslo, Norway. She will perform "Ave Maria" and one other song with their 60+ piece international symphony. This will be televised and will air in over 100 different countries.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 8 Sept. 2009
Format: Audio CD
Since going solo, Wynonna has sometimes strayed from her country roots. While this is markedly different in style from the Christmas album that Wynonna recorded with her mother in the eighties, it should have plenty of appeal to fans of contemporary country music. A slight disappointment is that Wynonna chose to re-record many of the songs that you'll find on Christmas time with the Judds. Well, at least if you listen to both, you'll notice the contrast. The musicians credited here play guitars, drums, upright bass, French horn, English horn, oboe, harp, harmonica and a vast number of strings, but Wynonna's lovely voice is always the focus.

Of the songs, the only original here (It's the messiah) closes the album and is indeed an excellent song, as well as being the album's highlight for me. Wynonna sings the familiar classics superbly. Two of them (Ave Maria, O come o come Emmanuel) are rarely found on country Christmas albums, so it's great to find them here. The other familiar classics are The Christmas song, Winter wonderland, White Christmas, I'll be home for Christmas, Santa Claus is coming to town, Have yourself a merry little Christmas, O holy night and Silent night.

This is a superb Christmas album that, rather like Jo Dee Messina's Christmas album, might appeal as much to fans of easy listening singers such as Doris Day as it does to country music fans. But hey! I'm a huge Doris Day fan as well as a huge country music fan, so I'm not complaining. Those who only want to hear traditional country music should forget this and buy Christmas time with the Judds.

Wynonna Judd is a very gifted singer, and she has proved to be able to sing both country and rock, and now she shows she can sing Christmas classics as well.

"A Classic Christmas" contains a good collection of Christmas classics. Her voice is perfect, and the musical arrangements are beautiful. The album has a very good christmas feeling. And her version of "O Holy Night" is very beautiful (and I don't usually listen to religious music).

If you're going to buy only one christmas album, this might be the one to buy.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Wynonna has a lovely and very distinguishable voice which suits this classic collection of Christmas favourites. The only track I am not sure about is Ave Maria, probably because I have versions of this sung by everyone from Callas to Netrebko so I have a very high bar for this one.

This album is not only for Country fans but anyone who likes their Christmas songs sung well will enjoy this.

A Classic Christmas Delight!!!!! 13 Oct. 2006
By Arthur Welborn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been a huge fan of Wynonna's since the early days of The Judd's. I have every single album she has put out with The Judd's and Solo efforts. I have seen her live 10 times. She never fails to impress me. This woman can sing ANY genre of music and succeed in doing so. On her first solo Christmas album, Wynonna sings some of the songs she did on her X-mas album with her mom. This time she has an Orchestra to back her powerful vocals. The Chrismas Song, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, White Christmas all sound like the classic traditional versions. Her voice with the Orchestra...WOW! On Santa Claus is Coming to town...I like the little bells in the background and the children singing. Ave Maria, Emmanuel and It's the Messiah are all beautiful songs. Not very many people could pull off Ave Maria. Wynonna does effortlessly!!! What more can I say....This is just a beautiful traditional christmas album that will be a staple in my CD player during the Holiday Season for years to come.

Best of Christmas 2006 23 Oct. 2006
By S. Petrofsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wy continues to evolve into the consummate singer in this beautifully produced album of traditional Christmas songs. From start to finish, the album reflects Wy's continual growth in vocal range and quality. In this fine collection, she leaves the realm of Country far behind, and transitions into a singer who defies boundaries by leaping over them and producing a better product with each release. Wy's work in the realm of symphonic music over the last two years has extended her vocal finnesse to become that once-in-a-generation singer that can sing anything they please and do it extremely well. There are no miscues on this album. It is fun to listen to; recorded in Wy's own style, she often adds inflections or emphasizes an aspect of a lyric that makes a song new again, even if you've heard it before. Ave Maria in it's native tongue is stunning, and Emmanuel moved me to tears. If you buy just one album this Christmas make it this one... You will be thrilled!

A Classy Christmas 11 Nov. 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're looking for the perfect CD for classy, tratitional Christmas music, this is it. This has everything from the playful Santa Claus is Coming To Town, with Wynonna's children singing with her, to the beautiful Ave Maria. You will hear the range in Wynonna's voice from soft and sweet to strong and powerful. If you love Christmas and tradition, Wynonna has done herself proud! I own this CD and have bought extras for Christmas gifts. I love it!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Just Great 12 Nov. 2006
By Timothy Hanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As the other person said, I would give it 10 stars if I could. This is definately THE BEST christmas album of the year. It really does showcase Wynonna's spectacular voice. My personal favorites are Ave Maria, Emmanuel, Oh Holy Night, and Silent Night.

AWESOME!

Christmas Wy Style 11 Nov. 2006
By W. Schultz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Is there ANYTHING Wynonna can't sing? From Country to R&B to Pop To Rock and here she tackles the holidays in a CLASSIC style. You don't have to be a "COUNTRY" Fan to love and appericate Wynonna, all you have to do is love music and let your ears do the rest.
