Here’s a mix of old and new holiday tunes for your shopping, wrapping, and celebrating.

You’ve got the holiday menus worked out and are gearing up for the gift-buying bonanza. Now all that’s left for your family gatherings is the ambience. Decorations are a big part of this, but so are the sounds of the season. And that’s why we’ve put together this holiday playlist for you. Once you’ve got everyone gathered ’round the tree or the table, hit play in the box below (an Apple Music account is required to listen to the songs in full).

You’ll hear new tunes from Reba, Lady A, Alabama, and Sara Evans, but you’ll also rediscover some of the classics. After all, what kind of holiday playlist would it be without “Pretty Paper,” “Blue Christmas,” and “Hard Candy Christmas”?

Enjoy the music, and happy holidays to you and yours.
