Both those songs recently made the list for top 25 Christmas tunes of the last five years and Williams jokes that because of that, I have December all locked up.
Williams isnt just resting on his Christmas music laurels.
He still spends much of the year looking for new holiday tunes to perform on his annual Christmas tour, which this year begins December 11 in Binghamton, New York.
This year, he is predicting that River, a Joni Mitchell tune that appears on James Taylors new Christmas album is one tune that he feels is going to become a holiday standard in coming years.
He also has high regard for Mary, Did You Know? which was popularized by Clay Aiken and Kenny Rogers.
Williams plans to sing both of these songs on the tour but says he tells his audiences that, if he has to choose, his favorite Christmas song is Moon River.
