The title track is an adaptation of John Denver’s 1975 Christmas gem, with the “snow-covered plains” becoming “dry, dusty plains”, and he even drops in a reference to cricket. As well as the traditional seasonal songs, such as Silent Night, Let It Snow and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, Cassar-Daley delivers two excellent originals – We Want To Share Christmas With You and Christmas For A Broken Family, which features his 18-year-old daughter, Jem.
This is a guaranteed hit on Christmas Day.
Christmas for Cowboys by Troy Cassar-Daley is out now via Sony.
