As Spotify pleases users with its yearly wrap, Toby Keith implores his fans to listen to a Spotify playlist. The playlist that Keith is promoting is a best-of type country playlist.

Christmas is quickly approaching and there might not be a better way to celebrate than listening to some of the greats sing. Keith sent out a tweet telling listeners to listen to “Country Christmas Classics.”

It is certainly time to crank up the Christmas tunes.

“Time to start crankin’ up the Christmas music! Check out @Spotify‘s “Country Christmas Classics” playlist, featuring a few of Toby’s holiday songs!”

The playlist that Keith shares has 149 Christmas songs, all from country artists who are at the top of the country world. Keith himself has two songs on the playlist.

Some of the artists include George Strait, Rascall Flatts, Dolly Parton, and Willie Nelson. The great Elvis Presley even has a song on the playlist. With the number of songs, there are almost eight hours of music to listen to during the holiday season.

In a different, weird holiday season, music is a great way to transport yourself into another world. This entire Spotify playlist that Keith suggests is a perfect way to get the whole family dancing.

There are plenty of reasons to listen to country music around Christmas. But this playlist melds the two together, and listeners get the best of both worlds.

Toby Keith and Christmas Music

Toby Keith himself has plenty of Christmas songs if you only want to listen to him. Keith has two Christmas albums, one from 2007 called “A Classic Christmas,” and one from 1995 called “Christmas To Christmas.”

His 2007 album reached number 8 on the Billboard Top Country Albums. And the 1995 album did even better. The album peaked at number 4 on the charts.

In addition, the country music star loves the Christmas season. Maybe he will put out another Christmas album, or at least a song.
