Elvis had only been gone for three months when a second Million Dollar Quartet, helmed by Johnny Cash, formed to honor him with a rendition of the gospel song "This Train." Cash's fantastic Christmas special aired Nov. 30, 1977 and featured Sun Studio notables Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Roy Orbison as well as longtime Cash sidemen Marshall Grant and W.S. Holland.

Cash's special also showcases the talents of Roy Clark, The Statler Brothers, and June Carter Cash. If you like your Christmas with a Memphis twist, this one's worth a click through.
