Martina McBride Schedules CMT-Sponsored Tour

Martina McBride launches her CMT-sponsored Joy of Christmas tour with a Nov. 24 concert at the Allstate Arena in Chicago. Now in its fourth year, the critically-acclaimed holiday show is a two-hour multimedia event with elaborate sets, special effects and a cast of actors that complement the music. In addition to selections from her White Christmas album, this year’s show will include “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” McBride overdubbed her vocal to the late Dean Martin’s classic track for inclusion in a reissue of his Christmas With Dino album. The 17-date tour ends Dec. 22 at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y. Tickets for the first part of the tour go on sale Oct. 21. The remaining dates go on sale Oct. 28.
