Chris Young reveals a surprising holiday-music influence:  The first Alan Jackson Christmas record. That record and The Beach Boys‘ Christmas Album – if I hear that, that means Christmas, as far as music goes. That was the two CDs or two tapes that were like, ‘Oh, it’s Christmastime,’ ’cause that’s what my mom would play in the car, everywhere. I know both of those CDs front to back. (laughs) And I know that sounds odd ’cause most people…I don’t think I’ve ever given an interview before where I’m like, you know, they go, ’Who are one of your influences?’ and I go, ‘The Beach Boys!’ But those two records absolutely are…those come on, and it’s Christmastime.”
