"Holiday Notes from Home is just one way for us to say thanks to all our military men and women and their families for their patriotism," said Lt. Gen. Charles E. Stenner Jr., the Air Force Reserve Command commander.

Lorianne Crook and Charlie Chase host this year's program, pre-recorded Oct. 26 at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, Tenn.

"It's an honor to bring Christmas music to all the men and women who are serving us overseas," said Ms. Grant, who performed several songs with Take 6 with accompaniment by 60 Air Force musicians from the Band of the Air Force Reserve from Robins Air Force Base and the Air Force Strings ensemble from Washington D.C.

Holiday Notes from Home began 13 years ago as a radio show.
