I'm Grateful For Christmas This Year - Hayes Carll

I saw Hayes Carll perform this song two weeks ago at Philadelphia's World Cafe Live. Now through the magic of the internet and the kindness of Lost Highway Records, I get to share it with you. Carll has channeled his inner John Prine and written a saccharine-free, less goofy, take on Robert Earl Keen's "Merry Christmas From The Family".

And since it's that time of year, we've also got a holiday treat from Teenage Kicks favorite Jeremy Fisher, lamenting the lack of his own personal bailout.
