We have a wonderful collection of artists — friends old and new — visiting to perform music from the new compilation An Americana Christmas. We will hear a high-energy original by Nikki Lane, called "FaLaLaLaLove Ya." Robert Ellis covers a Willie Nelson classic. Ronnie Fauss adds to a growing history of "Christmas in prison" songs. And Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars has two versions of a favorite carol. Hear each of the songs below.

Set List

Luther Dickinson, "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing"
