Among the songs he plays? Likely his 2018 duet with wife Gwen Stefani, "You Make It Feel Like Christmas." 02 of 10 Carrie Underwood Courtesy Carrie Underwood All dolled up at age 3, Carrie Underwood already looked like a superstar. As an adult, the "Hate My Heart" singer upgraded her wardrobe further — with "timeless and elegant" fashions — for her 2020 HBO Max Christmas special, My Gift. 03 of 10 Chris Young Courtesy Chris Young A big fan of tradition, Chris Young, in 1987, said the annual Santa photo was "one of those things you always got excited for." By the look of things, Santa was excited, too! 04 of 10 Jake Owen Courtesy Jake Owen Long before Kenny Chesney, Jake Owen and his twin brother, Jarrod (at age 9), were spending Christmases in the sand in their hometown of Vero Beach, Florida. "I believe that old tree is still there," said the singer. 05 of 10 Darius Rucker Courtesy Darius Rucker Darius Rucker (right) and a childhood friend posed in their Christmas sweatsuits, "trying to look cool," said the singer. Nice try, guys. As a grown-up, he transformed his Nashville home into a "Nordic Christmas" wonderland — sweatsuits not included. 06 of 10 Kenny Chesney Courtesy Kenny Chesney Back when island-loving Kenny Chesney was 5, Santa's lap could beat out a beach any day. He even matched his boots with Mr. Claus', no flip-flops required. 07 of 10 Kellie Pickler Courtesy Kellie Pickler Striking an adorable pose for her holiday portrait, Kellie Pickler, here at age 2, couldn't get any cuter. The same goes for the bunny adorned on the front of her adorable pink outfit. 08 of 10 Tyler Hubbard Courtesy Tyler Hubbard Smile! It's a teen Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line with his parents and less-than-thrilled younger brother Cameron in 1997. In recent years, he's taken his enthusiasm for the holiday door-to-door as an undercover Christmas caroler. 09 of 10 Brett Eldredge Courtesy Brett Eldredge Even as a young boy, Brett Eldredge was already channeling Sinatra, getting ready to open gifts dressed in an oh-so-cute tux and cummerbund. There's a reason he's called "Mr. Christmas." 10 of 10 Vince Gill Courtesy Vince Gill These days Vince Gill is a huge Nashville Predators hockey fan, but back when he was a young boy, it was all about football during the holidays. To refuel these days, Gill and his family enjoy a "big breakfast" on Christmas Day.
