REVIEW: For his 1976 Christmas special, taped November 1-6, Johnny Cash went home to the family’s farm in Bon Aqua, Tennessee, and to the family’s house in Hendersonville, outside of Nashville. The rural setting at Bon Aqua invites city-boy/country boy ribbing between Cash and his first guest, Manhattan-born Tony Orlando, who points out that “Tie A Yellow Ribbon” is my prison song. Join other special guests Roy Clark, Merle Travis, Barbara Mandrell and Billy Graham in this holiday-inspired first Christmas special from the legenday Johnny Cash.
