TIFS Song of the Day: 'Thank God For Kids' - The Oak Ridge Boys



"Thank God for Kids" is a song written by Eddy Raven. He recorded it in 1972 for his Dot Records album of the same name, and included it as the b-side to his 1976 single "The Curse of a Woman".

It was later recorded by American country music band The Oak Ridge Boys, whose version was the only single from their 1982 Christmas album.

The song spent sixteen weeks on the Hot Country Songs charts and peaked at number three.

In 2004, Kenny Chesney covered the song for his Christmas album All I Want for Christmas Is a Real Good Tan.

His version spent one week at number 60 on the country singles charts in January 2004.
