Carrie Underwood has been a Country Music enigma since winning American Idol back in 2005. Carrie is the Country Music personification of Merle Haggard's 'Okie from Muskogee,' being a native of that iconic locale.
There was, obviously, little chance that Carrie would not sing Country Music, which she does quite well, and so, accordingly, she celebrates the birth of our blessed Lord with her strong, soulful Country voice. Here we have three videos below to exemplify this spirit filled truth.
Here, we have Carrie crooning "Do You Hear What I Hear?": Below.
And bring up third, but not last in our hearts is Carrie's stirring rendition of the Judy Garland classic "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas": Below.
