Hayes Carll is "Grateful for Christmas"
Houston's own Hayes Carll, whose smash Trouble in Mind LP you will no doubt see strewn across Best Album lists for the next month, has a Christmas tune, "I'm Grateful for Christmas This Year," available for download on his label's Web site. The track was recorded during an appearance on "Imus in The Morning.
It's a Texas Christmas song that will bring you back to your youth, even if it's not over yet. Drunk relatives, burnt dressing, missing dead Grandpas, and snow in Houston. Remember that? That cold white stuff we saw last week? See it live above - after a quick (and fabulous) story. - Craig Hlavaty
