Twelve Songs of Christmas: Day Nine

Song #9: We Three Kings

George Strait

From Strait’s strongest and best Christmas album, his acoustic country version of “We Three Kings” is both beautifully arranged and reverently sung. – Leeann

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – While “We Three Kings” probably was not written with the banjo and accordion in hand, the Dirt Band does an admirable job of Americana-izing it. After falling in love with this version, I can never get used to the glacial pace of the more traditional takes of the song. – Sam


Next: Day Ten, “Christmas Time’s A-Coming”
