Collin Raye is doing his part to spread holiday cheer. The singer has announced a series of 10 Christmas shows, 'Keeping Christ in Christmas,' at the Star Theater in Branson, Mo., beginning on Dec. 6.

“Branson is America’s heartland for love of country, faith and family,” Raye explains. “Now more than ever is the time to proclaim the true meaning of Christmas by celebrating those loves with the birth of Jesus Christ. America has so much to be thankful for and I look forward to performing and celebrating this joyous season with the folks in Branson."

The 53-year-old is already a mainstay on the air waves at the holidays, thanks to his song, 'The Gift,' with Jim Brickman. But Raye, who released one holiday album, 'Christmas: The Gift' in 1996, says his show will include both traditional Christmas songs and a few unexpected tunes as well.

“While we will certainly play 'The Gift,' and a few of our other hits our fans love to hear, these exclusive performances will feature some of the greatest Christmas ballads of all time, with a few surprises along the way,” he explains.

Tickets are $39.50, and are on sale now. See a list of all his shows, and purchase tickets here.
