    Review

    Joy to the World: A Bluegrass Christmas received three and a half out of five stars from Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic. He concludes that "Charlie Daniels brings in a few friends for the rollicking Joy to the World: A Bluegrass Christmas. This pretty much relies on holiday standards, both secular and Christian, but they're not performed lazily: the Charlie Daniels Band plays these songs with no small amount of joy, making this a small season delight."
