Tom Wopat, the dark haired hunk of the “Dukes of Hazzard”, belts out “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”. This Bing Crosby hit sounds amazing with Tom’s smooth baritone voice. The album, Home for Christmas, was recorded and released last year with the blond haired stud of the “Dukes of Hazzard”, John Schneider. It debuted on the Billboard “Traditional Jazz” chart at #10 and was named by Rolling Stone as one of the year’s “10 Best Christmas Albums.”
