LeAnn Rimes announces 2017 Today is Christmas Tour
NBC

In LeAnn Rimes’ world, it’s never too early to start getting ready for the holidays, at least in the form of music that is. The pop/country singer announced her ‘Today is Christmas’ Tour on Tuesday, which will be heading into its fifth year of annually celebrating the holidays starting on Dec. 2 at Fort Lauderdale’s Parker Playhouse.

The annual tour, which will make a total of 13 stops in mostly smaller markets throughout the month of Dec, will help get fans into the holiday spirit with songs from Rimes’ 2015 Today Is Christmas holiday album and beyond. The month-long run will start out with a handful of Florida shows before moving across the Southeast U.S. and up into the snowy mountains of Colorado and Utah as Christmas approaches.

“Hard to believe we are talking about Christmas in July, but I am excited to start preparing for the holiday season,” Rimes added to go with Tuesday’s announcement. “It 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.”

In addition to performing her favorite holiday tunes and everyone’s favorite 90s movie ballad in “How Do I Live,” fans should also expect to hear songs from her latest LP in 2016’s Remnants. The album earned Rimes her second No. 1 single on the Billboard dance charts with “Long Live Love,” shortly after its U.S. release in Oct. of last year. 

Pre-sale tickets for select shows on her upcoming run will start on Thursday, July 26, with general on sale following a week later on Aug. 4.
