Christmas Time’s A-Comin’ To the Opry

Performing the Tex Logan Christmas classic, “Christmas Time’s A-Comin,’” the Osborne Brothers get the holiday spirit going on Grand Ole Opry Live tonight (Dec. 23) at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT. Little Jimmy Dickens, who celebrated his 80th birthday Tuesday (Dec. 19), also joins the bill. On last week’s show, Dickens and Jeannie Seely dressed up like Mr. and Ms. Santa Claus as Bill Anderson invited Brad Paisley to join the Opry. No word yet on Dickens’ holiday attire for this week, but he won’t be the only birthday boy among tonight’s performers. Bill Carlisle celebrated a birthday, his 92nd, on Tuesday; he’ll sing “Too Old to Cut the Mustard” (though he’s certainly not). Former Shenandoah frontman Marty Raybon rounds out the lineup with a performance of “Butterfly Kisses,” and he’ll close with a Yuletide contribution, “Christmas Comes Alive.”
