Candi Carpenter – If We Make it Through December

If you want to listen to a fantastic cover of a country classic, you’ll be hard pressed to beat Candi Carpenter’s ‘If We Make it Through December’. The song was originally recorded by Merle Haggard in 1973 and touches on the fact that Christmas isn’t always a fun time for everyone – a time when people can have it the toughest. Candi Carpenter delivers this message perfectly, performing lyrics such as ‘And my little girl don’t understand, Why mummy can’t afford no Christmas here‘ with great emotion, the song building to a wonderful crescendo as it moves through it’s three and a half minutes. This is wonderful.
