Hello, Vixens!!! Welcome back to the countdown!!!
I am not a fan of reality shows, so I do not watch them. I knew who the first winner of “American Idol” was because of all the publicity surrounding that season, so after that I really did not know anything about the competitors until Daughtry (sa-woon!!!).
So the winner of Season 4 was not on my radar. But then her song, “Before He Cheats” was everywhere, and I remember thinking is it really a good idea for someone to be bragging about a crime (“Carved my name into his leather seats, I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights, I slashed a hole in all four tires”) ? I must admit I was not impressed.
Then I saw her perform live at the 2014 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. She joined Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt & Emmy Lou Harris in a tribute to Linda Ronstadt.

This singer was so good even Stevie Nicks complimented her performance of “Different Drum“. That is an amazing feat. So is co-hosting the CMA Awards for eight years straight. So now I am a little impressed. Especially after hearing her take on this Christmas classic.

I do not own the rights to anything. I am just sharing some things that I love with you 🙂
What are some of your favorite Christmas songs?
Until next time, fellow Vixens, happy listening!!!
