Trace Adkins: The Christmas Show Tour

Hurry and get your tickets!!  Trace Adkins is headed out on the road this holiday season in support of his new Christmas album, "The King's Gift."  He has been receiving rave reviews for this release, which is a sampling of Christmas songs, strongly influenced by Celtic and Irish songs.  He's noted to Billboard that he wanted to do a project like this for quite awhile.

He said, "It was something that I had thought about doing for a long time. It was probably about 1998 when I first thought about doing it. But we got busy doing other stuff, so it fell on the back burner and we shelved it. Now, we finally got around to it. It’s just really classic-based, old hymns done with a Celtic/Irish approach. It was just a lot of fun. I enjoy a lot of music, and was inspired by a couple of instrumental records that a guy who is playing on my records had given me. I thought ‘I’d like to make a Christmas record with that kind of feel.’ He said ‘Let me know when you want to do it,’ so we eventually got around to it.”

"The King’s Gift" was released on Caliburn Records, which is a smaller record company that Adkins wanted to help lend his name to.

This Christmas tour will be unique for Adkins as it is a one-man theatrical show with full-scale musical production.  Special guests include Lily Costner and Andrea Zonn.
