With Buck Owens riding a tide of hit singles and top-selling albums, the time was right in 1965 to record his first Christmas album. Not content to re-do the same old holiday standbys, Buck and the band worked up a new batch of Christmas classics.
Even the lone traditional song, "Jingle Bells," received a brand spanking new arrangement courtesy of Buckaroo Don Rich. "Santa Looked A Lot Like Daddy," penned by Buck and Don, quickly became a perennial song of the season, thanks to it humorous lyrics and infectious melody. That song's rollicking sentiment is balanced by selections like the yearning "All I Want For Christmas is You," another Owens/Rich collaboration. From boot stompers to ballads, this album has it all.
