Performing for the first time at Walton Arts Center, this internationally acclaimed pop-country icon will bring good tidings of joy and cheer with traditional and original Christmas songs from her trio of annual holiday albums. Rimes will perform a variety of songs including new renditions of hits like “Blue” and “How Do I Live” as well as songs from her new critically acclaimed album, Remnants.

“Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year; there is something magical about it and being able to share it with my fans makes it all the more special,” shares Rimes.

Rimes’ Christmas projects continue to be staples in most holiday music collections. Her 2015 Christmas record, Today Is Christmas, peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Holiday Albums chart, and “Celebrate Me Home,” her duet with Gavin DeGraw, was the second most played new holiday song that same year.

Over the course of her 20-plus-year career and 19 albums, Rimes has had countless top hits on the dance, pop and country charts. Most recently, the powerhouse vocalist garnered her second #1 Billboard Dance hit, with “Love is Love is Love” from her latest album Remnants.
