The stockings are officially hung by the chimney with care, waiting for Santa Claus to make his arrival! We asked some of your favorite country stars what holiday traditions they carry on in their homes each year and here’s what they had to say:

Florida Georgia Line:
Brian Kelley:We always eat, go drive around and look at Christmas lights, and then go to candlelight service. I’m looking forward to me, mom and dad and my sister spending some time together. During the holidays, we like to sit on the couch and watch the Dog Whisperer and catch up on TV shows while drinking coffee. Just hanging out and laying low. I’m really looking forward to that this year.
Tyler Hubbard: We also go to candlelight service and go home and do a Christmas Eve dinner. We open up a few gifts that night. I’ve got a younger sister who just turned 12, so it’s still fun to go to bed early and wait for Santa Claus to come and all that stuff. I look forward to going home this year for Christmas.
Dustin Lynch: My granddad’s favorite movie is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Growing up the family would get together and watch it. This started a tradition of “Eddie Gifts” for all the sons and grandsons so every Christmas morning we all simultaneously open up our gifts from “Eddie.” It usually is a really obscure, funny object or joke in the movie. I love it! [Christmas Bonus: Get Dustin's mom's Apple Pie recipe here >>]
Justin Moore: We open presents on Christmas Eve. Some people do, some people don’t. That’s what I did growing up. Then we get our “Santa gifts” Christmas morning. Usually that’s the big gifts. Last year with the kids, we started doing it at our house. It’s funny, the older you get you kind of take on a different role. You go from being a kid that depends on your parents for everything and the older you get and the older they get, you swap roles. We started having them over to our house for everything. They spend the night with us on Christmas Eve, that way they can see the girls open their presents on Christmas morning, so that’s fun.

Eric Church:We always travel to North Carolina for Christmas. We always do Christmas morning and breakfast up there with my mom and dad. It will be great to bring Boone into that environment. It will be the first time he has really gotten to do that and know that he’s there. I’m just looking forward to having a little time off, coming into next year. Then I need to try and figure out Continue Reading
