So sad. His music is the first I reach for when we officially kick off the Christmas season. We started traveling to see his Christmas show a handful of years ago. The Moon River Theatre all decked out for Christmas was also terrific. We had tix to his shows about a week before he announced in Moon River Theatre in 2011. We went anyway and you could tell his show, in his absence, had his stamp all over it. We also had them last year and he died shortly before the Christmas run. Again, his show seemed to have his hand on it throughout. The video tribute was too short though.

The running joke in Branson, MO is, "Why do we start the Christmas season and have Christmas shows starting at the beginning of November?...becasue Andy Williams says so!"

He truly earned his title of Mr. Christmas.

We would LOVE for someone to release full copies of all of his Christmas shows as a compilation.
