This is one of those "easy on the ears and eyes" holiday treats. The set is lovely, Clay's vocal interpretation of favorite Christmas songs is appealing, and the video itself is timeless. What kept this from being a 10, in my opinion, is the pacing--at times it is a little slow. I wished it had the energy of Clay's live performances. Barry Manilow and Yolanda Adams are both talented and unique, but don't bring a lot to this special--it really highlights the down-home country charm of Clay and his powerful voice. Clay's "Mary Did You Know" is breathtaking in it's beauty, and "Merry Christmas With Love" is a poignant reminder of the blessing of friends at the holidays. Both these songs are sure to be classics in the future--and Clay's versions are outstanding.
