Sweet Swine County's "Wandering Tabernacle Choir" to Begin 2011 One-Night Holiday Caroling Tour on Dec. 23!
This holiday season, Sweet Swine County's "Wandering Tabernacle Choir" (directed by Lonesome Ron aka "King of the Valley Yodelers") will be wandering around Sweet Swine County performing the one and only holiday song they know--"On the First Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: One Load of Hogs."
However, the group announced that they will only be caroling at homes in Sweet Swine County that have well-stocked liquor cabinets. Due to global warming, they fear this may be an especially cold holiday season, and at each home the singers hope to warm their vocal cords with libations that make their efforts worthwhile--and help them make it through a cold night of caroling.
Sweet Swine Scoop is pleased to present a recording here that the group made last year at the home of Betty Thompson (TV hostess of "Cooking It Up With Betty" fame). Tenor Ronnie P. Silage told Sweet Swine Scoop, "Each year Betty's home is the first stop on our caroling adventure. When it comes to warmin' up the vocal cords, Betty's mulled wine can't be beat!"
Cousin John told Sweet Swine Scoop more about this years' plans: "I stopped by the liquor store in the town of Corn Row and got a list of their best customers. You better believe we'll be singing at every one of those homes this year! Cheers!"
