'Tis the season of giving! We've compiled a list of 10 of the best country music Christmas gifts to share with your friends and family this year - whether they're a festival fanatic, liquor lover, story searchin' bibliophile or wild outlaw spirit, there's something to bring everyone a hearty dose of festive cheer!
Merry Christmas one and all, from everyone at Holler x
Let's kick things off the right way. Booze!!
Holler's favourite country rockers Whiskey Myers are living up to their name and have joined forces with Treaty Oak Distilling - a company who "are pushed to re-think the creative process the way disruptive musicians, chefs and painters do" - to create their very own bourbon.
Just like the gritty authenticity Whiskey Myers are known for, this bourbon is the real damn deal. We can guarantee your lucky loved ones won't be disappointed. Cheers y’all!
In a year when the whole world went absolutely corn crazy, what better gift for the corn lover in your life than Hailey Whitters’ Cornstar socks?
The undisputed Queen of Corn and the recipient of Holler’s Album of the Year award has a whole store full of corntastic gifts, but these socks are our stand-out favs.
After all, what would Christmas be if someone didn’t give you a pair of socks?
This Christmas, why not give that special person in your life the gift of something to look forward to? Something to get them through the long cold winter months. And what better thing to look forward to than The Long Road, the UK’s premiere country music and Americana festival?
We can’t tell you exactly who’s playing (even though Baylen lets a little bit more of the line-up slip every time he gets a few margaritas in him), but we can tell you it’s going to be the best one yet!
Sometimes icons are that iconic that their holy image simply must be hung as a decorative Christmas ornament.
Fortunately, the good people at A List Ornaments know what's up, and have created a beautifully framed festive Merle Haggard, for one and for all. It'll make an unbeatable classic country music gift for any outlaw lover in your life.
Unbelievably this is Luke Combs’ FIFTH crocs collab! It seems like you lot can’t get enough of his strange yet surprisingly practical moulded rubber footwear.
Fresh off the back of his second CMA Awards win for Entertainer of the Year, a new album and a stadium tour, Luke Combs has teamed up with Crocs once more, this time collaborating with the outdoor lifestyle brand Mossy Oak to create a fetching camo design, based on their iconic Greenleaf pattern first released in 1987.
The perfect Christmas present for any hipster mum on manoeuvres.
Not a day goes by in the Holler offices without Maxim having to put at least a couple of dollars in the Kenny Chesney jar; a plastic cup that sits on his desk that he has to stick a forfeit in for every time he mentions Bubba.
This authentic Kenny Chesney Caribbean rum is blended with natural ingredients and available in Spiced, White, Coconut Spiced, Banana, Coconut, Vanilla, Key Lime Rum Cream, Pineapple Rum Cream, Coconut Spiced Rum Cream and, Jesus, how many flavours of rum do you need!?
It’s also “infused with Kenny Chesney’s heart and soul, from beach to bottle.” Which is a bit weird, but hey, it’s Christmas!
You can't not love Margo Price. The no-shit-takin', feminist outlaw queen released her memoir, Maybe We'll Make It, this year and it's an absolute bookshelf staple.
It’s a memoir of loss, motherhood and the search for artistic freedom, that also tells a heart-warming love story of music and collaboration with her husband and songwriting partner, Jeremy Ivey.
The perfect country read to indulge in whilst wrapped up and cosy this winter.
Here at Holler, we've got a special place in our hearts for Bristol Rhythm and Roots Festival, which takes place in the beautiful twin-city of Bristol, TN/VA - also known as the birthplace of country music.
With 49 Winchester already confirmed as headliners, the 2023 edition of the festival is already set to be a great one. So beat the bustling crowds and rock up to the festival ready and raring to go in the official Bristol R&R 2023 t-shirt, designed by one of Holler's favourite illustrators, Hank Collie.
In our humble opinion, it doesn't get much cooler.
We’ve only just fully taken in the first part of Garth Brooks' comprehensive Anthology series and now he’s back with the second!
Garth picks up where he left off in The Anthology, Part I: The First Five Years, telling his story in his own words and offering fascinating insights into his career and personal life from 1996-2001.
The series takes an in-depth look at the stories behind the songs and recording sessions for Fresh Horses, Sevens, The Limited Series, Double Live, and Scarecrow.
Country artists absolutely LOVE Christmas!
Every year, a whole host of the genre's beloveds release new festive songs to soundtrack the season and spread cheer. Music is the gift that keeps on giving, so why not get your friends and family copies of the best new country Christmas albums to celebrate with for years to come?
This year, our choice would be Reba McEntire's Ultimate Christmas Collection. You can't go wrong. A very merry Christmas indeed!
