Elvis Presley was a big fan of Christmas — so much so that he always put up decorations early and kept them on display through his Jan. 8 birthday, per Graceland.com. It’s a tradition the Graceland estate in Memphis still honors more than 40 years after Presley’s death.

Now, to help usher in the holiday season, several musicians have gathered in Elvis’ decorated home to celebrate his love of Christmas and to perform his music (the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll recorded two Christmas albums during his career).

Here’s a look at highlights from the “Christmas at Graceland” special, which aired Nov. 29 on NBC and is now available for streaming on Peacock.
