Recording a Christmas album is something that transcends genres and can introduce people to new artists. From the classics to branching out to originals, musicians and artists take full advantage of this time of year! Music Reports, a rights administration platform, complied a list of the most recorded holiday songs using the largest database of music rights in the world called Songdex. This database complied both musical compositions and recorded versions of the holiday songs making the list pretty extensive.
