Kenny Rogers Embarking on 33rd Christmas Tour in 2014
Kenny Rogers will launch his 33rd Christmas tour across the U.S. and Canada, and special guest Linda Davis will be joining him in 2014.
The run kicks off Nov. 12 in Niagara Falls, Ont. and finishes up right before Christmas Eve, on Dec. 23 in Westbury, N.Y. It's aptly titled Christmas and Hits Through the Years, and will feature a fun, family-friendly atmosphere that has become a holiday tradition for many country fans and Christmas fans alike.
Rogers will perform classics like 'White Christmas,' 'O Holy Night,' 'The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire' and 'Mary, Did You Know.' The heartwarming performances will also feature a local choir and children at each tour stop, ensuring that every night will certainly not be a silent one. The legend will, of course, also deliver some of his greatest hits, such as 'Lady,' 'The Gambler' and 'She Believes in Me,' making this Christmas concert an early gift to all of his fans!
In addition to the tour, Rogers getting into the holiday spirit with a beloved and familiar track -- Jim Brickman's original song 'That Silent Night' for Brickman's holiday album 'On a Winter's Night: The Songs and Spirit of Christmas.' It has fourteen original recordings and is set for release Oct. 7. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund, supporting groundbreaking research for osteosarcoma, a rare and aggressive bone cancer.
Rogers is up for a 2014 CMA Award for his duet with Dolly Parton, 'You Can't Make Old Friends.' He and the songstress also received a Grammy Award nomination earlier in the year.
