In 'The Christmas Guest,' the story of spreading holiday cheer takes on a whole new meaning, thanks to Johnny Cash's signature deep and raspy voice.

In this addition to the Top 50 Country Christmas Songs list, Cash tells the holiday story of a shopkeeper named Conrad, who is waiting on a visit from the Lord. As strangers come to his door seeking help, he realizes that God visited him in the form of beggars who needed his generosity. It's a story all Christians hear at Christmas: Treat others as you would like to be treated, just like the Bible says. But something about the Man in Black telling the story makes it even more touching.
