You can expect to hear such classics from the 50s as Chuck Berry’s “Run Rudolph Run,” Jody Levin’s “Jingle Bell Boogie,” Elvis Presley’s “Blue Christmas” and many more.

“Honky Tonk Holidays” invites you to share in wonderful memories with Jason and his band. They will make you believe you are hearing Dolly tell you about a “Hard Candy Christmas” and listening to Willie sing about “Pretty Paper” while Elmo and Patsy recall how “Grandma Got Ran Over By a Reindeer.” The Gospel section of the show will highlight the “Reason for the Season” and the bluegrass song “Christmas Time’s A-Comin” will make you smile, make you cry, while you clap your hands and stomp your feet.
