When I was a student at Kentucky Wesleyan College, I sang in the Kentucky Wesleyan Singers.  And, each December, we joined the Owensboro Symphony Orchestra for their annual Christmas concert.  It was a really fun way to get in the Christmas spirit.  In fact, OSO still hosts that concert annually.

Of course, a lot of popular recording artists have Christmas concerts and tours as well.  Years ago, Martina McBride brought her Christmas tour to Roberts Stadium in Evansville.  Vince Gill and Amy Grant do multiple Christmas concerts each year at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Pentatonix, which features Kevin Olusola from Owensboro, just announced their Evergreen Christmas Tour, which will roll into the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville in December.  This year, Sara Evans is bringing her Hallelujah! Tour to the Old National Events Plaza on December 3rd.

And, now, we're hearing that Steven Curtis Chapman, the most awarded singer in Christian music history (the man has 59 Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association) is coming to Owensboro.  He'll be bringing his Acoustic Tour to the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum just a couple of weeks before Christmas.

Here's the big announcement:
