This is a great Christmas CD I bough quite a few years ago. I can’t find my copy so I just ordered another from Amazon.
There are some great steel guitar parts in this Christmas CD. I originally ordered this from a late night TV commercial. There are no musical credits in the CD and no mention of any of the musicians. All great players and very enjoyable.
It must have been a studio album and marketed for TV at the time. Maybe the new copy will have more info.

Mike Toppins had played steel with Bill Anderson for a few years, then he played steel with Pam Tillis. After I started playing steel, I played along with "White Christmas" that was on this record
