The Ninth Day of Christmas Music – 2015 Edition

Chris Isaak (with Stevie Nicks) – Santa Claus Is Coming to Town

Chris continued on to release a number of critically acclaimed titles, played a major role in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Mestarred, as well as feature roles with Keanu Reeves and Bridget Fonda, and starring in his own TV series on Showtime.

Chris released Christmas in 2004, and it’s a fun, cheerful, traditional Christmas romp. He recorded this American holiday classic (first sung on Eddie Cantor’s radio show in November 1934) as a duet with Stevie Nicks.

In 2007 Isaak opened for Stevie Nicks on her Crystal Visions Tour during the first leg of the tour.
