45th Annual CMA Awards - Press Room

[lastfm link_type=””]Kenny Chesney[/lastfm] spoke about his favorite holiday song from his youth recently, and  that he had the chance to record it with the original vocalist.

Kenny says: “Growin’ up in the South, I can just remember hearin’ that a lot. I mean, every Christmas, you heard [lastfm link_type=””]Alabama[/lastfm]. You heard [lastfm link_type=””]Randy Owen[/lastfm] singing ‘Christmas in Dixie.’ And it was just one of those songs that…you know, my hometown radio station played every year. And I just always remember lovin’ that song, and then I got into the music business and was able to get to know Randy and the boys. They just mean so much to me. And you know, to have Randy come in and to lend his voice to one of my records was just an awesome feelin’. Somethin’ that I’ll be able to have forever. It’s pretty cool.”
