On the eighth day of Christmas, Country Music #CMchat brings to you Jana Kramer for a Twitterview! BUT, before you get to hang out with Jessica Northey, the #CMchat team, and Jana herself, we deliver to you her version of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
A Christmas classic that was originally performed by the late, great Judy Garland in 1944, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” was ranked by ASCAP as one of the most covered holiday songs in history. Despite the many covers of the classic holiday tune, you have not yet heard a version quite like Jana’s.
With sultry vocals that could be akin to Marilyn Monroe’s “Happy Birthday Mr. President,” Jana croons the lyrics of the song, showing off range in her vocals that has not yet been presented by the actress turned country star through her own releases. While Jana Kramer has undoubtedly proven to the country music industry that she has the voice to make it big in Nashville, this track takes her vocals to a new level, demonstrating just how broad her abilities are and the amount of versatility she has as an artist. Add in the southern drawl that Jana exhibits in her music and she has truly adopted “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” as a song of her own.
