Mac Davis has the good sense to present Christmas music with a minimum of variety-special patter. Davis quickly brings on guests Barbara Mandrell, Ronnie Milsap and Gladys Knight and the Pips to sing songs in the spirit of Christmas present, past, and country and Western. It's a blessedly simple format for a festive program.
