Dixon released "Let It Snow" as he and wife Annie are about to celebrate their first Christmas with their newborn twins. Written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in July 1945, the classic was penned in Hollywood, California, ironically during a heat wave as Cahn and Styne imagined cooler conditions.
