27 Guaranteed Party Stoppers! This ain’t your typical holiday party soundtrack. In fact, throw this mix on and watch the place clear out. Fast. As Red Simpson says, this one’s a little on the sad side of Christmas. You see, the holiday season is usually filled with light and joy and the comforts of being in the company of friends and families. But that ain’t always the way it is for some around this time of year. Relationships crumble, loved ones pass away…sometimes a job (usually involving driving a truck) interferes with the holiday spirit; sometimes a job is lost, shattering the plans for a perfect Christmas. All of these maladies and more are the canvas on which these country artists create their peculiar art: the sad as hell, depressing country Christmas song. This is my 2016 mix for friends and family.
