Tim McGraw brings an international flavor, at least lyrically, to his new holiday single, Christmas All Over the World When the bells start ringing, it suggests, "no matter where you are, it's going to warm your heart," according to McGraw. With its lyric, McGraw names numerous countries and cultures and says a little bit about how each celebrates the season.

Sonically, the song features a big twang-y guitar part, which gives it a kind of wild-west-meets-U2 feel. The track also features a nice slide guitar solo. This isn't the deepest, most spiritual Christmas song you'll hear this year. However, it's impossible to not feel good while listening to it. It captures the whole joy part of Christmas perfectly.
