Winter is coming ... and so is Christmas. And maybe sooner than you think. LeAnn Rimes announced the dates and locations of her annual Today Is Christmas 2016 tour, and some presale tickets and VIP Packages are already available.

The tour is named for Rimes' 2015 album, Today Is Christmas. You may have seen copies of it in Target while doing your holiday shopping last year -- it was the No. 1 New Christmas Music seller in Target stores around the country.

It may be September, but Rimes thinks the world could use a little bit of Christmas cheer.

"With everything that is going on in the world, I think we could all benefit from a little Christmas cheer this year," Rimes says in a press release. "I love being able to celebrate my favorite holiday with all of my fans singing along to Christmas classics and some of my new originals."

Some of those classics from the album include "Holly Jolly Christmas" and "Little Drummer Boy," along with the Rimes originals "I Still Believe in Santa Claus" and the title track.

Presale tickets and VIP packages are already available for Fan Club members, and tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, Sept. 16.

You can buy Today Is Christmas on iTunes and Amazon. Tour dates can be found below.
