That’s right, Mary Sarah fans. You knew the American Legion Christmas Special show with Mary Sarah, The Oak Ridge Boys and The Gatlin Brothers was airing, but you didn’t know that Mary Sarah would premiere her rendition of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” right here TODAY. And, even better, it is now also available for download on iTunes.
Mary Sarah lends her classic sounding vocals to a classic Christmas favorite, with the help of her friends The Martin Family Circus. In the new old fashion way of Mary Sarah, this artist is far beyond her years, as is demonstrated by the delivery of this 1958 tune, originally recorded by the iconic Brenda Lee. The Martin Family Circus, a six-person group comprised of four children and their parents (Paul and Jamie Martin, March (15), Kell (12), Texas (8), and Tallant (6)), lend harmonies and background vocals on the track. A likely collaboration, the two acts share special bonds with The Oak Ridge Boys: Jamie Martin is the Oak Ridge Boys’ Duane Allen’s daughter, while Mary Sarah is a friend and regular performer with The Oaks.
Mary Sarah’s version of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” (featuring The Martin Family Circus) is now available on iTunes for download and can be heard on the American Legion Christmas Special during this holiday season. Check your local listings for channels, dates, and times.
