Later in the show, Chris Janson returned to the Opry circle with his recently released cover “Holiday Road.” The lively song, written by Lindsey Buckingham, holds cherished memories for many, including Janson, who not only infused his signature vibrancy into the vocals but also showcased his drumming skills, bringing timeless holiday joy to all. 

“I’ve always loved Christmas Vacation, the movie, and this song reminds me of that,” Janson explained to Big Machine Label Group. “I hopped in to play drums on this track, and I hope everyone loves it!”
