Good afternoon, folks!
Yep, I missed yesterday. Sorry about that.
But, back to the Christmas song list.
Number 12 is a fun favorite of mine.
“Christmas Cookies,” is a song written by San Antonio native Aaron Barker and was recorded by, “King George,” himself, George Straight.
Barker has written number one songs for George Strait (“Baby Blue”, “Love Without End, Amen”, “Easy Come, Easy Go”) and Lonestar (“What About Now”). His songs have also been recorded by Doug Supernaw, Clay Walker, Neal McCoy, Aaron Tippin and others. Barker turned “Love Without End, Amen” into a book in 2002.He was inducted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Hall of Fame in 2007.
On August 8, 2016, it was announced at a private press conference that Barker would be inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame at a ceremony held on October 9, 2016.
George Straight hails from Poteet, Texas, so of course to sing this cute little modern Christmas song, with a double dose of Texas, who else would we want to sing it for us?
