The holiday season is just around the corner and so is Martina McBride's Christmas tour, The Joy Of Christmas.
McBride will spread Christmas cheer through twelve different states, bringing her most popular Christmas hits to a city near you. The tour starts off in Biloxi, Mississippi on November 24 and runs through December 22. McBride tells Taste Of Country, “The Joy of Christmas is a magical show full of beautiful scenery and classic beloved Christmas music as well as a few hits from my career. It's a show for the whole family. With this tour we create a sort of Christmas winter wonderland. If this show doesn't leave you full of the Christmas spirit I'm not sure what will!"
The tour announcement follows the news that McBride is hard at work on releasing a brand new holiday album. She tells Sounds Like Nashville, “When I made 1998's White Christmas, I wanted to make a classic sounding record. I can't do that same record again, of course, but this one is going to have several up-tempo things on it. It won't have as many hymns on it. It will be more things like 'Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town' and 'It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas." Information on the title and release date has not been released yet, so stay tuned here for all future information. The Joy Of Christmas Tour tickets go on-sale this Friday, August 25. You can pre-order tickets and VIP packages tomorrow here. See a full list of dates below.
