WATCH: Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, and Jerry Lee Lewis Tribute Elvis on the Johnny Cash Christmas Show in 1977

Elvis’s sudden death was big news in 1977. He left quite a hole in a lot of hearts.

In his Christmas special that same year, Johnny Cash did a tribute to the King. Along with Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, they performed “This Train Is Bound For Glory” for Elvis who loved gospel music.

The video is a great walk down memory lane!

I really miss Christmas specials like that one. Today’s entertainers are more about the flash. Back then it was about the talent, not the flash.

This video is a good reminder of that.
