Here, Hayes Carll tells the story of a lovestruck guy from Beaumont, Texas who recalls his encounter with a girl in a Houston bar. Asked during a Reddit AMA why he made the man a Beaumont native, Carll replied:
"When I lived in Crystal Beach I would go up to Beaumont a lot to play and hang out. It felt like just the right amount of distance from Houston to work for that song."
"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
