“The Joy of Christmas is a magical show full of beautiful scenery and classic beloved Christmas music as well as a few hits from my career. It’s a show for the whole family,” McBride said in a press release. “With this tour, we create a sort of Christmas winter wonderland. If this show doesn’t leave you full of the Christmas spirit, I’m not sure what will!”

In addition to a new tour, this year McBride celebrates 25 years in country music. She credits her fans with her career’s longevity. “I think it comes down to the fans. If they hadn’t been interested, I wouldn’t have had a 25-year career,” she admitted. “I have great fans, and I think I was really lucky to find great songs and songs that made a difference in people’s lives. Songs like Independence Day, Concrete Angel and A Broken Wing and even This One’s for the Girls. When you create something that people take ownership in and bring into their lives and attach meaning to, that’s big.”
