It feels like Christmas in July with the recent announcement that Phil Vassar and Kellie Pickler are teaming up for A Christmas Tour. Both artists are fan favorites when it comes to Christmas music and we are excited to see what they come up with together. To kick things off, Pickler and Vassar collaborated on a brand new Christmas single, “The Naughty List." The song, co-written by Vassar and Juliana Songs, and produced by Dane Bryan, will be released later this year.

In 2011, Vassar released his full-length Christmas album, Noel. It is full of classics like “Oh Come All Ye Faithful," “Away in a Manger," and “I'll Be Home for Christmas." He also spiced up the record with his own original Christmas tracks like “Santa's Gone Hollywood," “Big Ol' Texas Christmas," and “Let's Make a Little Christmas."
Kelly Pickler also has a few country Christmas hits including her take on “Santa Baby," breaking Taste of Country's Top 50 Country Christmas Songs. In a press release, Vassar stated, “I absolutely love Kellie, and am so excited to go on tour with her. She is an amazingly talented lady and everyone who comes to our show this holiday season is going to be in for a fun time!"
