Carrie Underwood and 5-year-old son deliver heartwarming rendition of “The Little Drummer Boy” in charming duet

If you grew up in a household that was anything like mine, your family will have its own compiled, established list of Christmas classics.

My parents were more inclined towards the old-fashioned Christmas hits – the likes of Mariah Carey and Wham! were strictly off-limits – so I have a special place in my heart for those ballads that have survived the decades and wake feelings of nostalgia whenever they’re played.

That’s probably why I got all fuzzy inside the first time I heard Carrie Underwood’s take on The Little Drummer Boy, which she sang as a heartwarming duet with her little boy…

The Little Drummer Boy is truly a timeless hit, I think we can all be in agreement on that.

Reportedly, the lyrics for the tune have their roots in a traditional Czech carol, with the song as we know it today believed to have been written by Katherine K. Davis in 1941.

As with any well-received Christmas hit, it’s benefitted from numerous covers over the years: the likes of Bing Crosby, Johnny Cash and even Justin Bieber have produced their own versions.

The favorite version of this much-loved musical piece is something that differs from person to person based on taste, but the chances are you’ll find aspects to appreciate in all of them. After all, it’s a bona fide classic for a reason.

Yet I can’t deny that I was overcome with an especially warm feeling upon first hearing Carrie Underwood’s cover from 2020, recorded alongside her then-5-year-old son Isaiah.

For those who don’t know – we hope there aren’t many of you – Carrie Underwood is a country music icon who has captivated and charmed audiences time and again over the years.
