Patty Loveless Bluegrass & White Snow: A Mountain Christmas (Epic)

Patty Loveless could sing an eggnog recipe, and it would sound like country music.

With a couple of choice originals like the haunting title track and guest appearances by Dolly Parton, Ricky Skaggs, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, and Trisha Yearwood, Loveless, and producer Emory Gordy Jr. have crafted one of the best new Christmas discs in a long while.
