It’s a Country blast from Christmas past!
The classic Christmas TV special is almost a lost art. Yeah there are new ones every year but they just don’t feel the same as the classic ones from Perry Como, Bob Hope, or Bing Crosby. Back in the late 1970′s Country fans had the Johnny Cash specials to look forward to and enjoy. ”The Man In Black” was joined by his wife, June, The Carter Family, The Statler Brothers, and the rest of his musical family
