I’m not ashamed to admit I’m a sucker for Christmas movies…
Yes, they all have the same story. Yes, I know how they end, but there’s just something about them that really gets the Christmas spirit running through my veins.
Well, as it turns out, a few country music legends feel the same way and have gone so far as to lend their talents to acting in one of them.
Here’s 5 Christmas Movies starring Country Music Legends
A Holiday To Remember – Randy Travis
A divorced, top-level LA psychiatrist leaves the West Coast to go back to her hometown of Mayville, South Carolina where she runs into her old fiancé (Randy Travis), the town’s Police Officer, handyman and prime bachelor and, well, you can imagine where it goes from there…
A Holiday For Love – Travis Tritt
A corporate man travels to a small town to determine which workers of a downsizing factory will be fired, but falls in love with a single mom. Oh, and the town’s Sheriff is a mullet rocking Travis Tritt. What’s better?
Christmas In Tune – Reba
Fresh from 2021, Rebastars as a marketing executive and former singer who reunites with her duo partner and ex-husband (played by Bo Duke himself, Joe Schneider) for a Christmas charity performance, but they find themselves falling back in love.
Ahh, just warms the heart…
A Smoky Mountain Christmas – Dolly Parton
Dollyplays a Country Music star who gets burnt out from her career and the loneliness that comes with it. She tried to escape to the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee for a Christmas of peace and quiet, but finds 7 orphans have taken over the cabin where she’s supposed to stay. Dolly and the kids, along with a mountain man, form a tight knit band to fight back against the paparazzi and an evil witch woman…
Not your typical story, but hey, not all Christmases are typical.
Although neither are the main characters (Willie sells him a house and is totally not Santa Claus and Kris is “The Colonel”), they both serve their roll in helping the main guy and his wife (Coach Taylor’s wife Tami) find the joy of Christmas once again.
