Shimmy Down the Chimney finds the stars of country and bluegrass rounded up for a night around the Christmas tree to serenade all you good cowboys and cowgirls out there with both contemporary and classic holiday tunes.

The tough talkin' "Santa Claus Is Back In Town," by Dwight Yoakam, opens the disc in twang-bar style and gives the collection its contemporary edge, while several tracks later, Merle Haggard's "Jingle Bells" is as classic as classic gets.

And there is more holiday tradition on the way: The Judds' "Silver Bells" is referential and makes the perfect showcase for their trademark harmonies. Tanya Tucker turns in a moving "What Child Is This?" and it is among the disc's most beautiful versions of a sacred classic. Rosanne Cash's "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" is also a lovely tribute to the season, and Deana Carter's arrangement of the traditional "Carol of the Bells" is filled with Christmas spirit.

"Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" by Jo Dee Messina is more playful, as is Toby Keith's "Christmas Rock" (about his woman's want of diamonds for Christmas). Del McCoury does a fun, old-time take on "Call Collect On Christmas," while country queen Dolly Patron does a super-jolly, bluegrass-inspired "Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer."

SheDaisy's "Deck The Halls" is a sitar-infused country-rock vocal experiment. And for the Alison Krauss original, the songbird puts down her fiddle and instead, wraps her girlish vocals around "Shimmy Down the Chimney." Steve Wariner also contributes a romantic holiday original, "Christmas In Your Arms," to the collection.

Willie Nelson adds his "Pretty Paper," which is nearly a Christmas classic, while Trace Adkins does a straight take on a real chestnut, Mel Torme's "The Christmas Song." Glen Campbell travels the straight and narrow on the standard, "I'll Be Home for Christmas," as does Kenny Rogers on "White Christmas."

The finale, John Berry's devotional "O Holy Night," is note perfect and moving, in the true spirit of the season. There's hardly a twang in it, but there ain't no country music lover on earth who'll deny this hymn's beauty.

So c'mon li'l doggies, Christmas is here and y'all need some carols. Why not make this year your Country Christmas?
