It was in 2006 that Amy Grant and Vince Gill started bringing fans the very best of the holiday season with their annual Christmas tour; and they’ve just announced that this year will be no different. The couple has just announced that once again, they’ll be bringing the holiday cheer all across the U.S. with the 2011 tour The 12 Days of Christmas — Amy Grant & Vince Gill.
In typical fashion, the duo will get the audience involved in the two-hour long concert, getting them to sing along with some of the most beloved traditional Christmas carols, as well as some contemporary tunes when it’s time to mix things up. It’s those audiences that both singers have come to love. Amy says on her official website, “Christmas audiences are special. They tend to involve the whole family, and their emotions are a wonderful mix of anticipation and reverence.” Gill agrees, saying, “These holiday tours have become our favorites.” The tour kicks off on December 7 in Baltimore, Maryland and will wrap up in their hometown of Nashville, Tennessee for two dates, December 20 and 21.

Vince Gill can be considered one of the founding fathers of country music, with multiple Grammy awards, CMA awards, and other select awards under his belt. When Amy Grant first came onto the scene in the late 70s, she was primarily a Christian singer and was one of the first to make the switch to contemporary music in the early 90s. After making the crossover she became a household name with her hit album, Heart in Motion, which had huge hit singles such as Baby Baby, That’s What Love is For, and Every Heartbeat. Since that time, Amy has gone back to recording primarily Christian and holiday music.
