  • In the dense annual blizzard of holiday albums, A VERY SPECIAL ACOUSTIC CHRISTMAS shines like a gleaming treetop star from a warm, inviting living room, thanks to its organic, no-frills approach and its remarkable lineup of performers. Dan Tyminski (of O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? fame) offers up a charming version of "Frosty the Snowman," while Willie Nelson lends his legendary voice and guitar playing to a fine take on "Please Come Home for Christmas."
  • Alison Krauss contributes her surprisingly poppy "Only You Can Bring Me Cheer (Gentleman's Lady)," Marty Stuart confides that "Even Santa Claus Gets the Blues," and Pat Green saunters through a relaxed "Winter Wonderland." Bringing the Yuletide album to an appropriate close is Norah Jones, in a beautiful solo rendition of Horace Silver's "Peace."
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/25/03-1/8/04, p.122) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...[A] classy country-and-bluegrass benefit [that] avoids Nashville crassness in favor of an album suggesting O SANTA, WHERE ART THOU?..."

Entertainment Weekly (12/19/03, p.74) - (12/19/03, p.74) - "...[This VERY SPECIAL collection] merits the name..." - Rating: B+
