The 2011 Skaggs Family Christmas tour stops at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony on Thursday, Dec. 22.


Little Big Town has released their version of the Christmas classic “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” for digital purchase.

“This is one of my favorite things we’ve ever done as a band,” says Karen Fairchild. “It’s a great challenge to interpret a classic and make it your own. I’m really proud of the way this turned out and am hoping we make a bunch of folks’ Christmas playlists for years to come.”

Little Big Town performed “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” and “Santa Clause Is Back In Town” on the televised CMA Country Christmas earlier this month.


Joey+Rory are promoting their A Farmhouse Christmas CD and tour with a new television special.

Country’s Family Reunion Presents Joey+Rory’s A Farmhouse Christmas will air on RFD-TV 12/23, and 12/24.

“We’re thrilled at how it turned out. Funny thing is, we don’t even have a tv, so we’ll have to go visit someone and catch it one these nights!” said Rory.

Joey+Rory mixed songs with their band from A Farmhouse Christmas with conversation as they performed on a set they built in their 1870’s farm house and barn in Pottsville, TN.

“It was decked out like a winter wonderland,” said Joey. “You won’t even be able to tell Rory usually has his old cars and boat parked where we were singing!”
