Vince Gill, Amy Grant Plan Christmas Tour

Vince Gill and Amy Grant will commence their 13-city tour, “Target Presents: A Christmas to Remember,” Nov. 30 at the Compaq Center in Houston, Texas. It will be their first tour together. Also on the bill are the acoustic music trio Nickel Creek and young contemporary Christian music singer Rachael Lampa.

The Nashville Symphony will tour with Gill and Grant as a 40-piece orchestra. “We are very much looking forward to this tour,” says a symphony representative, “and we anticipate it will be the huge success that such tours have been in the past.”

Neither Grant nor Gill, who were then expecting their first child, toured this past Christmas season.
