Blue Christmas was a country music staple about a decade before [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Elvis Presley[/lastfm] debuted his immensely popular rock and roll version of the song (by the way, keep checking in closer to Christmas to see that version as a KEZK Video of the Day). Over the years, many artists have covered the song in both styles, though the rock and roll version is a little more common.

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Vince Gill[/lastfm]‘s version of the song is, of course, much more in the country tradition than rock. It’s a little slower, a little softer, and a little sadder than the song you might be used to, but it’s no less meaningful.
