Dolly Parton

With her cheery, festive voice—like Mom always tried to sound after a sleepless week of baking cookies and wrapping packages—Parton is an ideal holiday singer. While the songs on this joyful album are traditional, from "Go Tell It on the Mountain" to "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" (where she's backed by a chorus of children), she gives them a fresh, natural spin. Deck the halls with bows to Dolly. (Columbia)
