Big & Rich and a few of their friends recently took over the old west town of Deadwood, a national historic landmark located in the Black Hills of South Dakota, for a holiday music special. Christmas in the Black Hillspremieres on GAC on Monday, December 12 at 8/7 CT.

Thompson Square, Bradley Gaskin, Tracy Lawrence, Andy Gibson and The Farm joined Big & Rich with performances of holiday classics shot in and around Deadwood. The town has already seen its first snowfall of the year, providing a beautiful backdrop. Performances were filmed in Deadwood’s Town Square, along country roads and at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Hotel and Events Center.

During the special, Big & Rich will perform “Blue Christmas” and “Drunk on Christmas,” an original song by Jimmy Fallon. Bradley Gaskin sings “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem” while Thompson Square shares their rendition of “Santa Claus is Coming To Town” from the back of a horse-draw sleigh as well as “Christmas in Dixie,” and Tracy Lawrence hops on a 19th century locomotive for “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Andy Gibson performs both “The Christmas Song” and “Feliz Navidad” and The Farm contributes their version of “Oh Holy Night.”

Christmas in the Black Hills wraps with the artists joining together for a medley of holiday classics. The special will re-air on GAC throughout the holiday season. Check Times >>
