More Cheery Americana Christmas Songs

Some further Americana Fesitive Fayre for you today.

We start with the legend that is Steve Earle from his 1997 album  El Corazon with Christmas in Washington a modern day American history lesson.
Mr Earle is followed by Sufjan Stevens from his 2006 Songs for Christmas bemoaning the fact that That Was the Worst Christmas Ever.

Something slightly more festive tomorrow and altogether more cheery

Steve Earle - Christmas in Washington

Sufjan Stevens - That Was the Worst Christmas Ever


  1. Don't worry about the "more cheery" stuff - Christmas isn't Christmas without a nice dose of misery and sadness...

  2. Sufjan's tune is one of the greatest Christmas songs ever.

  3. There he is. Sufjan, woo-hoo!
