Christmas means a heap of Christmas songs you wish you didn’t have to hear ever again, at least until another 10 months. In November and December, too many versions of the same 25 songs are played to death to where you wish you could shave Rudolph. But when a new song is released, it’s great to listen to because it hasn’t been plowed through the dirt. This is a future standard that, let’s be honest, may one day become a staple of holiday time radio but until then, let’s enjoy it like a freshly unwrapped present. This one comes from singer/songwriter Shelby Earl, whose “This Christmas Is For Us” sounds like an intimate love letter between two people. When there’s nothing else, there can often be love.
