The Christmas Show features historical and humorous narration and Celtic carols performed by Adkins and his twelve-piece “Sarepta Symphony.” This year, renowned Scottish singer, Alyth McCormack, also joined Adkins on stage.

Unlike many Christmas shows, Trace’s brings a unique experience and perspective. Steering clears of a holiday spectacle of flashiness and materialism. Trace’s show has a down-home,low-key vibe that centers around the true meaning of the season, Christ’s birth. The celtic musicianship and musical arrangements give old carols a new sound.

It’s obvious Trace puts his heart and soul into the show, giving background to the songs we’ve been singing for years, and explaining the true reason behind each tune.

Stand-out performances of the night were “Silent Night” and “Little Drummer Boy” mainly because these timeless classics were given new life with the unique sound and arrangement but still keeping them inspired by their original forms.

Trace relaxed vibe, good sense of humor, and unique Christmas concept gave everyone at Tennessee’s Performing Arts Center a little calm in the midst of the holiday storm surrounding us.

Trace Adkins Kicks Off Christmas Tour Tonight

Trace Adkins

Trace Adkins will kick off The Christmas Show 2014 Tour TONIGHT, Friday, Nov. 14th, at West Point in Highland Falls, NY. He’s continuing the tradition he started last year – giving reverent, family-friendly shows that feature humorous and historical narration as well as gorgeous, Celtic carols that he performs with his twelve-piece “Sarepta Symphony.” Renowned Scottish singer, Alyth McCormack will join Trace at each stop.

Yesterday, on HLN’s Morning Express with Robin Meade, Trace said,

“It’s old, traditional carols and we put the Celtic treatment to them – bagpipes, violins and everything. Musically, it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever had the chance to be a part of.”

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. The album, which was released in 2013, received rave reviews for its respectful tribute to an ancient genre that transports the listener to a time of mystery and valor.

This year, as Trace again hits the road for the holidays, he has released The Christmas Show DVD. It features performances from esteemed guests Alyth McCormack, Andrea Zonn and Lily Costner, behind the scenes interviews with Trace, and was filmed during last year’s tour stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, FL. The DVD is now available at retailers such as Wal-Mart, Target, Barnes & Noble, online retailers and TraceAdkins.com.

Trace Adkins Continues Holiday Tradition with The Christmas Show 2014 Tour

Trace Adkins

Country star Trace Adkins will hit the road on November 14th for The Christmas Show 2014 Tour, continuing the holiday tradition he started last year with this reverent theatrical and musical production for the whole family. Fans can also bring The Christmas Show home with the “The Christmas Show” DVD available today. A full list of tour dates are below and tickets can be purchased through http://www.TraceAdkins.com.

“The holidays are my favorite time of year and I’m excited to bring this show back on the road. These shows aren’t just a straight up concert, they’re bigger and more exciting with the 12 piece ensemble, the storytelling and some of the most beautiful arrangements I’ve ever heard.”

The Christmas Show 2014 Tour features songs from THE KING’S GIFT (Adkins’ album of Celtic carols) as well as historical and humorous narrations and fireside chats. These Christmas classics will be performed by Adkins and his twelve-piece “Sarepta Symphony,” including Scottish singer, Alyth McCormack, whose voice is featured on the studio version of “I Saw Three Ships” from THE KING’S GIFT and also joined Adkins on “The Christmas Show” DVD. Trace is beyond humbled to have Alyth join this year’s tour and have her perform a few songs of her own.

The tour is inspired by Adkins’ annual hosting duties at Disney World’s Candlelight Processional, where his deep baritone narrates Christmas stories, while a full choir and orchestra perform. It has always been a highlight of Trace’s year and he is thrilled to bring his own unique version of this concept on tour for the second year in a row.

“The Christmas Show” DVD features performances from esteemed guests Alyth McCormack, Andrea Zonn and Lily Costner. Filmed during last year’s tour stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, FL, the DVD also includes behind the scenes interviews with Trace and other members of the tour.

In addition to a ticket to this year’s Christmas Show, fans at participating venues can also download a copy of Adkins’ Celtic Christmas album THE KING’S GIFT (released October 2013). THE KING’S GIFT (“Tiodhlac An Righ,” in Gaelic) pays tribute to an ancient genre and transports the listener to a time of mystery and valor.
