For the 30th straight year, Kenny Rogers is bringing his holiday favorites to fans across the country. Beginning on the day after Thanksgiving, the country legend will hit the road for the Christmas and Hits Tour. Billy Dean will open all 17 dates.

“Thirty years is a long time to do anything, but a Christmas show seems to get easier every year, especially when I get a chance to work with friends like Billy Dean,” Rogers says on his website.  “He always brings a great energy and beautiful music to the event."

In addition to country hits like 'The Gambler' and 'Lady,' Rogers promises classic Christmas songs like 'White Christmas,' 'Joy to the World' and 'O Holy Night.' He makes the concert even more memorable by inviting children's choirs from each city to join him onstage during parts of the show. Tickets are already available for some of the dates at
