Fabulous 50's Christmas Songs

This list is from our band brother, Russ Logan, brother of noted bluegrass fiddler Tex Logan, who wrote Christmas Times A Coming with Bill Monroe.

Russ' late brother, Homer, was a great Country Western and Bluegrass fiddler in his own right.

Of course, we think that Russ is a more than a mighty fine mandolin and guitar player.

Ever forward . . . ><>

Although they are not oldies, I would add Alan Jackson's Let It Be Christmas and Vince Gill's Let There Be Peace on Earth to your list. And John Berry singing anything.

Merry Christmas!
