Nothing says Christmas like good friends and good music—especially good friends that make good music. So to highlight the holiday, we engaged one of our favorite music-making friends in some spirited Christmastime conversation.
So push pause on your holiday merrymaking to eavesdrop on this special chat with three-time Dove Award-winning singer-songwriter friend—and one of our favorite people—Miss Ginny Owens.
CCM: If you had to forsake all others, name the one Christmas album you can’t live without during the holiday season.
Ginny Owens: Oh this is so tough. But I’d have to say, Amy Grant’s A Christmas Album (buy). Clever title, isn’t it? I have been listening to this classic since I was a kid. I even had the karaoke track for “Tennessee Christmas” and practiced it often with my hairbrush microphone. I love the simplicity, honesty, and beauty of this album.
CCM: You are a fantastic cook! What is the definitive Ginny Owens Christmas dish?
GO: Why, thank you! Sweet potatoes with marshmallows, brown sugar and cinnamon topping. I usually make a green salad to help balance out the meal. [Laughs] Or green beans—with sugar and bacon, of course.
CCM: If you could spend Christmas anywhere in the world, where would you spend December the twenty-fifth? And who would you spend it with?
GO: That’s a good question I have thought a lot about lately. As a single person, I love the idea of having different Christmas experiences each year. Serving Christmas dinner to refugees or at a soup kitchen, and then hosting a party for close friends and family sounds delightful. But escaping to a tropical island with a friend or two sounds equally as delightful. As long as those I know and love are present, I could enjoy Christmas anywhere.
