This special day consists of a chauffeured trip from their school aboard an entertainer’s luxury tour bus, dinner, and a party hosted by Santa and Mrs. Claus at The Hendersonville Expo Center. To wrap up the day, the tour buses journey to the Hendersonville, Tennessee Walmart, where the kids receive a brand new winter coat, and $150.00 to spend on anything they like.

Tickets start at $45.

 “I am so excited to ‘deck the hall’ with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum as they open their doors to the Nashville community and celebrate the spirit of the season,” says Lee. “I can’t think of a better time of year to play my first ever Nashville show than during the holidays!”
