If you grew up in a family like mine, you probably have your own special list of classic Christmas songs. My parents liked the old-fashioned ones, so no Mariah Carey or Wham! for us. I have a soft spot for those timeless tunes that bring back memories when they play.
That’s why I felt warm and fuzzy the first time I heard Carrie Underwood sing “The Little Drummer Boy” with her little boy. It’s a classic song that everyone seems to love.
“The Little Drummer Boy” has been around for a long time, and it’s said that the lyrics originally came from a traditional Czech carol. The version we know today was written by Katherine K. Davis in 1941.
Just like any popular Christmas song, lots of artists have covered it over the years. Bing Crosby, Johnny Cash, and even Justin Bieber have their own versions.
Everyone has their own favorite version of this beloved song based on personal taste. But chances are, you can find something to like in all of them because it’s a true classic.
I have to admit, I felt a really warm and special feeling when I heard Carrie Underwood’s version from 2020. She recorded it with her then-5-year-old son Isaiah.
In case you don’t know, Carrie Underwood is a big deal in country music. She has wowed and charmed audiences for a long time.
In 2020, when Carrie Underwood announced she was releasing a Christmas album, fans were really excited. The album had a mix of classic Christmas songs and new ones written by Carrie herself. But for me, the standout track is the 11th one – you guessed it: “The Little Drummer Boy.”
Carrie did a special duet for this song with her son Isaiah, and he nailed the iconic vocals. Don’t believe me? Watch the video below:
Wow! If that doesn’t get you in the Christmas spirit, we don’t know what will.
