In Their Words: "I enjoyed playing this cover since I adore Elvis so much. We arranged the song while we were recording 'Trio B.C.' -- our second album at Sonic Ranch Studios. And because we were on a ranch, it definitely inspired the arrangement. Gabe Gonzalez -- our producer -- suggested playing the steel guitar. The results were a unforgettable Texas-style rendition of 'Blue Christmas.'" -- Bassist Jenn Alva
