Michael W Smith

Three-time GRAMMY winner Michael W. Smith will bring holiday cheer to audiences across the country this holiday season as he launches “The Spirit of Christmas Tour,” set to hit several cities in the U.S. and Canada. Partnering with Smith as the official tour sponsor is Cracker Barrel Old Country Store®.

Earlier this year, Smith debuted his first classic hymns album, aptly named Hymns, exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store locations and online at The tremendous success of the album, which was recently nominated for a Dove Award for Inspirational Album of the Year, led to Cracker Barrel Old Country Store signing on as the official tour sponsor.

“I’m really happy to have Cracker Barrel as a tour sponsor,” remarked Smith. “Our local Cracker Barrel has become a very special place over the past several years. It’s where I take my Dad once a week for breakfast. We’ve shared some great memories there that I’ll always cherish. It feels great to have Cracker Barrel as part of my tour.”

“We enjoyed working with Michael and his team when we exclusively released his Hymns album earlier this year, and were so happy for them when it was recently nominated for a Dove Award,” said Cracker Barrel Marketing Manager Julie Craig. “Christmas is a time when families come together, and often they gather to share a meal at Cracker Barrel. When we were approached about sponsoring his ‘Spirit of Christmas Tour,’ we knew it would be a great fit.”

In addition to “The Spirit of Christmas Tour,” Smith will co-headline three special events with long-time friend and fellow GRAMMY® winner Amy Grant. Teaming up in Dallas, Minneapolis and Atlanta, Smith and Grant will showcase their beloved Christmas set while performing alongside a full symphony orchestra. Full tour dates are listed below.

Smith & Friends: The Spirit of Christmas, featuring an all-star lineup of guests – Vince Gill, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Amy Grant, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Nettles, Bono and Michael McDonald. The album will be available in stores – including Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® – as well as online on September 30.

“This is the most unique and unusual record I’ve ever done in my 31-year career,” remarked Smith.

The album was co-produced by Smith, CMA Music Awards and CMA Country Christmas producer Robert Deaton and renowned orchestral maestro David Hamilton.

The sale event, available exclusively on, will last until October 7th.

“While we love touring and visiting our fans all across the country, there’s nothing better than being at home in Nashville with our friends and families,” commented Kimberly. “Teaming up with Joss & Main has allowed us to tap into what we love most about being at home, by showcasing photos of our favorite rooms, and highlighting the things that mean the most to us.”

“Kimberly and I have very different styles from one another, but we both have a passion for making our homes a beautiful retreat to enjoy time with our family and friends when we’re home in Nashville,” added Karen. “We’re thrilled to share this excitement with Joss & Main on a beautifully curated assortment of items for the home.”

“Karen and Kimberly of Little Big Town are incredibly inspiring to our team, for both their musical talents and their great personal taste,” said Joss & Main’s style director Donna Garlough. “As we collaborated on this collection, we sought to capture the relaxed Southern feel of Kimberly’s home, blended with the modern, glam and rustic touches that Karen loves. We’re thrilled with the result—the offering is daring yet approachable and playful, much like Kimberly and Karen themselves. I can’t wait to share it with our members.”
