    Interesting list. Glad to see #60 on it.
    Two of my all-time favorites:
    “It Wasn’t His Child” – Trisha Yearwood, written by Skip Ewing.
    “My Heart Is Bethlehem” – John Berry, written by Michael Peterson.

    My short list of songs truly worthy of inclusion:

    “Let’s Make a Baby King!” – New Grass Revival (The song was written by Jesse Winchester)

    “Blue Christmas” – the Amber Dotson version (which I mention every year on this thread)

    “White Christmas In the Sand” – This is a fine Jerrod Neimann song that apparently never made it beyond a Seagayle songwriter demo CD, which is truly a shame. Not to be confused with Colbie Calliat’s “Christmas in the Sand”.
