Ahhhhh! The nostalgia gremlin strikes again! You've got to understand that my childhood was dominated by these two people because my parents listened to country ALL THE TIME. If it wasn't Kenny and Dolly it was friggin' Alabama or Ronnie Milsap. It's not really country though - it's got more of an "Islands in the Stream" adult contemporary/pop sound. Not being totally country mean it doesn't annoy the crap out of me. So... yeah... '87 and I have some good memories of mom getting ready for Christmas dinner and me playing with whatever toys I got watching TV while mom blared this. I liked it then, I like it now. There... I've said it. The stoning may commence!
Useless Fact: This was actually a TV special back when you could actually do a variety special on TV. I do remember seeing it and I've tried to YouTube it but I've never found it. Oh well... maybe somethings are better left in the past.
