Trace Adkins adds Grammy Winner Jason Crabb to Christmas Tour
Throughout the evening, Trace Adkins tells the Christmas story and displays reverence for the true reason for the season - Jesus Christ - and Crabb is a perfect compliment to the evening. This is the second annual Christmas Show Tour, which features humorous and historical narration, gorgeous Celtic carols with his twelve-piece “Sarepta Symphony,” and renowned Scottish singer, Alyth McCormack.
Crabb will get audiences in the Christmas spirit with songs like "Mary, Did You Know," "Let's Make A Baby King," "Don't Save It All For Christmas Day," among others.
“I’m excited about Jason joining for a few dates,” Adkins stated. “I’ve wanted to work with him for a long time and I’m glad our schedules finally worked out. This is the perfect tour for us to work together”
Crabb said: "I can't wait to join Trace for his Christmas Show tour. We're going to have a great time celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ - the true reason for the season. You don't want to miss this!"
As an early Christmas gift, participating venues will gift a copy of Trace’s first-ever Christmas album, The King's Gift to ticket buyers along with their ticket purchase.
