Martina McBride’s Joy of Christmas Tour Misses Us
Martina McBride is set to reprise her Joy of Christmas headlining tour, announcing 16 dates for the popular holiday outing. But, she won't be coming our way. What a bummer! According to Cory Strombold at Taste of Country, the singer will kick off the newly-announced Christmas excursion on Nov. 23 in Atlanta, Ga., just days after wrapping her upcoming One Night theater tour.
"The Christmas season is by far the McBride family's favorite time of year," admits the wife and mother-of-three (quote via Republic Nashville). "Holiday music is some of my most favorite to sing and it reminds me of the memories I have growing up that I've shared with my daughters."
The singer will most likely include material found on her platinum-selling 'White Christmas' holiday album, which was originally released in 1998. McBride repackaged the project in 1999, and again in 2008, to meet fan demand for fresh holiday music.
"I have compiled all of my favorite Christmas songs and will package them together in a fun concert for all,” assures McBride.
The Kansas native will hit the road beginning Nov. 23, and will wrap the tour just days before Christmas. Fans interested in attending McBride's Joy of Christmas tour can visit her official website to purchase tickets.
