Holly Jolly Christmas is Part of The Christmas Sound

This Christmas Sound song was initially performed by famous movie actor, Burl Ives. Even though it was featured as credits rolled in the TV show Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, it didn’t make the charts until 2019 – when digital streams were counted in the Billboard Hot 100. Making it the longest time between charting songs for one artist – 56 years! Ives performed first on TV for Dolly Parton’s “A Down Home Country Christmas” in 1987. The version that is most popular in The UK is Michael Buble’s 2011 cover. Holly Jolly Christmas is part of The Christmas Sound on 106.1 The Sound.
