Because it's Wednesday

 Mr. Santa by Suzi Bogguss

Wowser. It seems like only last Friday 'Blue Christmas' by Seymour Swine & The Squealers was my favorite Xmas song, but Mr. Santa by Suzi Bogguss now has that top honor.

From StarPlus dot Com:
"One of the most acclaimed female country singers of the late '80s and '90s, Suzy Bogguss was able to balance country tradition with a contemporary mainstream sensibility, thereby satisfying both audiences and critics.
She moved to Nashville in 1985 and worked as a demo singer while playing in clubs by night; she later took a job singing at the Dollywood theme park and sold tapes of her own music, one of which got her signed to Liberty/Capitol when a label executive heard it. Bogguss released her first singles in 1987, and her debut album, Somewhere Between, appeared the following year.
...1991's gold-selling Aces (album), which spun off a total of four hit singles: "Someday Soon," "Letting Go," "Outbound Plane," and the title track (the latter three all made the country Top Ten). Bogguss was now a star, and her 1992 follow-up, Voices in the Wind -- a more pop-oriented effort -- brought the highest-charting hit of her career in the number two cover of John Hiatt's "Drive South"; it also became her second straight gold album."
The rest, they say, is herstory.
