Kellie Pickler, Phil Vassar Team for Holiday Single and Tour
Two country music favorites, Phil Vassar and Kellie Pickler, are teaming up this holiday season for a special 13-date Christmas tour.
The shows launch at the end of November and continue through Dec. 23 and will feature the two stars at their holiday best, performing an array of Christmas arrangements they've individually released over the years.
“I absolutely love Kellie, and am so excited to go on tour with her,” Vassar says in a press release. “She is an amazingly talented lady and everyone who comes to our show this holiday season is going to be in for a fun time.”
Vassar has completed a Christmas tour every year since 2009 and established himself as a holiday favorite upon the 2011 release of his first Christmas album, Noel. Pickler has also been in the holiday spirit prior to this tour, performing memorable renditions of "Santa Baby" and "The Man With the Bag" at high-profile events. In 2013 she recorded a well-received version of "White Christmas" with Michael Bublé. In honor of the tour, Vassar and Pickler are also set to release a new combined holiday single called "The Naughty List," written by Vassar and Juliana Songs.
"So excited that Phil and I are hitting the road together this Christmas season," Pickler says. "Being able to tour with Phil is an amazing honor. He’s an incredibly talented artist. We’re both looking forward to spreading as much cheer as we can this holiday season."
Select tickets for a Christmas Tour have already gone on sale via Ticketmaster.
