For fans of Christmas music, the country classics by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette hold a special place by the fireplace hi-fi. Sometimes witty, often wistful, their seasonal recordings are essential holiday mood-making soundtracks, even as they rarely leave the Xmas blues too far behind. Sunny Sweeney, Brennen Leigh, Courtney Patton and Jamie Lin Wilson, who've banded together for a tour called "Hard Candy Christmas," know the country and folk classics, and they update them with the more rocking side of the Nashville Americana sound. All four can sing like honky-tonk angels; on stage together, they'll deliver the yuletide spirit with plenty of twang, sass and grit.

Speaking of Christmas Classics: Written by Dolly Parton, the song "Hard Candy Christmas" deserves to be better known. It's a country Christmas heartbreaker if ever there was one.

Watch Sunny Sweeney's video for "My Bed" below:

Hard Candy Christmas
8 p.m. Tuesday, December 13. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue. $12 to $15. 314-773-3363.
