Country music icon Loretta Lynn's holiday classic "Country Christmas" is a must-listen every year. Enjoy this video from 2016 featuring John Carter Cash!

In 2016, country music legend Loretta Lynn released a special “Country Christmas” video which featured the famous holiday tune along with clips from past family Chrismas celebrations. The clip also includes June Carter Cash and Johnny Cash‘s son, John Carter Cash, on guitar. This Loretta Lynn song appears on the Kentucky native’s second Christmas record, White Christmas Blue, which also dropped last year.

Enjoy the heartwarming “Country Christmas” video below!

In May 2017, Loretta suffered a stroke at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. Fortunately, she is recovering and even performed portions of two of her biggest hits, “Coal Miner’s Daughter “and “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man),” during the fall Tennessee Motorcycle and Music Revival.

After her medical emergency, the 85-year-old decided it was best to cancel her remaining 2017 tour dates along with pushing back the release of her upcoming album, Wouldn’t It be Great, to 2018

“Country Christmas” Lyrics

Mommy popped the popcorn
And we string it on the tree
Apples nuts and candy
Oh, what a Christmas feel.

Daddy played the organ
And we’ll all sing Silent Night
We’ll have a good old
Country Christmas alright.

A good old country Christmas
That’s what it’s gonna be
With all the family gathered round
Our pretty Christmas tree.

We’ll open up our presents
Christmas Eve about midnight
We’ll have a good old
Country Christmas alright.

Aunt Annie Belle will be here
Uncle Bill and darn our kids
We’ll make ballets on the floor
Just like we always did.

Gradnama bake the pies and cakes
Oh, what a pretty sight
We’ll have a good old
Country Christmas alright.

A good old country Christmas
That’s what it’s gonna be
With all the family gathered round
Our pretty Christmas tree.

We’ll open up our presents
Christmas Eve about midnight
We’ll have a good old
Country Christmas alright.

A good old country Christmas
That’s what it’s gonna be
With all the family gathered round
Our pretty Christmas tree.

We’ll open up our presents
Christmas Eve about midnight
We’ll have a good old
Country Christmas alright…
