Trace Adkins Kicks Off Christmas With Holiday Themed Tour

By: Tony Manfetano   It’s nearly two whole weeks before Thanksgiving so you know what that means, naturally it’s time for the Christmas season. Well, sort of.   You may not even be thinking about climbing into the attic or scouring the depths of your basement to drudge up those boxes of lights and ornaments yet, but Trace Adkins is ready to get your yule tiding with his second annual holiday concert series The Christmas Show 2014 Tour.

This is a family event blending seasonal solemnity, humor and history along with the big man himself belting performing choice Celtic carols. And by big man, I mean Trace, not Santa. This year the multi-platinum selling country icon is joined by the twelve piece Sarepta Symphony and prominent Scottish singer Alyth McCormack.

The tour kicks off at New York’s West Point Military Academy Friday Nov. 14th subsequently traveling the east coast and parts of Texas before the final date in Clearwater, Florida.

The New York Times and Billboard, respectively, have both raved about The Christmas Show Tour but this year the Celebrity Apprentice winner is sweetening the pot by offering a copy of his first holiday album “The King’s Gift” with ticket purchase at participating venues.

But alas, tis the season to get hectic, so if you cannot make it out to see the live show Trace still has you covered. As the tour begins he simultaneously has released “The Christmas Show DVD”. Filmed during last year’s Ruth Eckerd Hall show in Clearwater the video features guests Alyth McCormack, Andrea Zonn and Lily Costner as well as interviews with Adkins.

    The whole installation rlaley worked in a auspicious way. The real wall, those windows up high, the odd parachute sculptures, the lovely laptop mini film, The way we all had to come together to look in the window of the van, the engine running,the coming together of family and friends and city officials and the powerfully simple time line that drew it all together (I had the pleasure of handing out) it worked for me.I think the waist shirt workers would have been very proud. In fact I felt them there.falling and rising.
