Half a decade after his variety show on ABC ended, Johnny Cash began hosting an annual Christmas special for CBS, bringing a down-home (and frequently more reverent) element to the body of holiday specials made popular by the likes of Andy Williams and Bing Crosby. For his second such special, in 1977, Johnny brought in some of his former Sun Records labelmates to help pay tribute to Elvis Presley, who had died just two months before the shows taping. The program is hardly somber, though, as the set list will attest. Johnny and Junes guests include Roy Clark, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, and the Statler Brothers. Songs include 1.Christmas Times A Comin-Johnny Cash 2. Darlin Companion-Johnny Cash &amp June Carter Cash 3. This Old House-Johnny Cash &amp the Statler Brothers 4.
