Kenny Rogers Announces 2014 Christmas and Hits Through the Years Tour
Kenny Rogers is once again hitting the road for his annual holiday tour. The Country Music Hall of Fame member has announced the dates for his Christmas and Hits Through the Years Tour, with his good friend Linda Davis serving as his special guest.
In addition to several holiday classics like 'White Christmas,' 'O Holy Night' and 'The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire),' Rogers will include a brand-new song, 'That Silent Night,' which is a collaboration with renowned pianist Jim Brickman. That song will be available on Brickman's upcoming album, 'On a Winter's Night: the Songs and Spirit of Christmas,' which will be available on Oct. 7.
Rogers will also feature his version of 'Mary, Did You Know?' at each concert stop, joined by a local choir, and the 76-year-old will perform some of his biggest hits, including 'Lady,' 'The Gambler,' 'Islands In the Stream,' 'She Believes in Me' and many more.
The tour marks the singer's 33rd holiday trek. It kicks off on Nov. 12 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, one week after the 2014 CMA Awards, where he is nominated for his 24th CMA Award. Rogers received a nomination for Musical Event of the Year for 'You Can't Make Old Friends,' a duet with Dolly Parton that is also the title track of his latest album.
