Skillet Lickers to star in ‘Smoke’ sequel, ‘Sanders Family Christmas’

The Skillet Lickers are proud to once again join forces with the great cast of ‘Smoke on the Mountain’, performing in the show’s sequel, ‘Sanders Family Christmas’, from November 24th – December 10th at the Cumming Playhouse in downtown Cumming, Georgia.

This will mark the third consecutive year in which the band has collaborated with the Playhouse in a ‘Smoke on the Mountain’ related production. The band performed in all sixteen showings of ‘Smoke on the Mountain’ in 2015 and again in 2016. This time around, it will be different, as they perform in the critically acclaimed Christmas sequel.

Shows will take place every Thursday, Friday, Saturday (two shows), and Sunday from November 24-December 10. Like the original show, this production is expected to have it all – from great comedy to familiar (Christmas) music to moments that are sure to pull on your heart.

It’s another amazing show that’s sure to put you in the holiday spirit! As has happened in previous years, each show is expected to sell out. Be sure to get your tickets now at!


Sanders Family Christmas is the sequel to Connie Ray and Alan Bailey’s wildly successful bluegrass gospel musical Smoke on the Mountain. It’s December 24, 1941, and America is going to war. So is Dennis Sanders, of the Sanders Family Singers. Join Pastor Mervin Oglethorpe and the rest of the Sanders family as they send Dennis off with hilarious and touching stories and twenty-five Southern Gospel Christmas favorites.
