Martina McBride launches The Joy of Christmas tour Friday in Atlanta, and she'll be on the road through a December 21 show in Chicago. Being on tour that close to December 25 means Martina has to have all her ducks in a row to pull Christmas off well for her three daughters.
She tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution , "It forces you to get organized and start Christmas shopping early, which you don’t usually do. But doing a Christmas show every night puts you in a Christmas spirit as well. It’s a beautiful show, beautiful to look at."
Martina's new tour features 12 musicians including a few string players and backup singers added to her regular touring band. Martina also has six costume changes during the holiday concert. Check out MartinaMcBride.com for a full list of tour dates.
