LOS ANGELES, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- The Dukes of Hazzard stars John Schneider and Tom Wopat will release holiday album Home for Christmas on October 28.
The former co-stars partnered on the album to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the CBS series. Schneider and Wopat paired Christmas staples with lesser-known holiday songs, and are backed by a "bright and brassy big band" on the record.
"I think this is a fresh take on the Christmas album," Wopat said in a statement. "Jazz fans and serious musicians will appreciate what we've done with these tunes. Our arranger John Oddo has a true affinity for that classic '50s and '60s sounds."
"I love singing with John Schneider," he continued. "The timbre of our voices match, the harmonies blend so easily. Plus, he's a barrel of laughs."
The Dukes of Hazzard premiered in 1979, and ran for seven seasons before being canceled in 1985. The series follows cousins Bo (Schneider) and Luke Duke (Wopat) as they race around in their 1969 Dodge Charger and cause trouble with their various escapades. Catherine Bach co-starred as cousin Daisy, with Denver Pyle as Uncle Jesse, Sorrell Booke as county commissioner Boss Hogg and James Best as county sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane.
Schneider currently stars as Jim Cryer on OWN soap opera The Haves and Have Nots. Wopat last appeared as Ryan Hutton in ABC Family movie Lovestruck: The Musical in 2013.
