Leslie Jordan Releases A Holiday Song ‘Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth’ (Duet with Cheyenne Jackson)

The two gay actors who met on the set of Call Me Kat (Fox) have recorded a cover of the ‘Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth’.

Gay Community Darling, Leslie Jordan, is expanding onto singing. Following his debut album’s release, he is now teaming up with his Call Me Kat co-star for a traditional Christmas single ‘Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth’. The result is super cute.

“This song is special to me because never in my dreams did I think I would get to sing my favorite song with one of my best friends,” says Jordan. “Cheyenne Jackson’s voice is the perfect gift for all of us during the holidays.”

Christmas classic ‘Little Drummer Boy’ dates back to the 1940s but most people know it after a version by Bing Crosby and David Bowie became a surprise hit after it was recorded for Crosby’s 1977 Christmas special.

The couple have recently finished filming the second season of Call Me Kat (with lead actress Mayim Bialik), which will premiere January 9, 2022 on Fox

Based on the British series Miranda (created by Miranda Hart), Call Me Kat follows Bialik’s character, an optimistic and fun-loving woman continuously defying societal expectations and her mother’s (Swoosie Kurtz’s Sheila) wishes, who uses her entire savings to open a cat café in Louisville, Kentucky. She works alongside Randi (Kyla Pratt) and Phil (Leslie Jordan), with Carter’s (Julian Gant) piano bar across the way. That’s where Kat’s best friend from college, Max (Cheyenne Jackson), works. And Kat was trying to choose between Max and new beau Oscar (Christopher Rivas) at the end of Season 1.

Jordan’s debut album Company’s Comin’, which released this spring and featured duets with Dolly Parton, Eddie Vedder, Brandi Carlile, Chris & Morgane Stapleton, Ashley McBryde, Charlie Worsham, Katie Pruitt, Tanya Tucker and TJ Osborne, as well as co-producers, Travis Howard and Danny Myrick. The album garnered widespread critical acclaim from press including NPR Music, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Vogue, The Washington Post and more. Rolling Stone called it “one of the year’s most surprisingly uplifting listens,” and Los Angeles Times declared, “The down-home joy and communal revelry of his performances are a balm for these frayed times.”
