Trace Adkins will release a Christmas album of Celtic carols entitled The King’s Gift on Oct. 29, 2013. The holiday album will feature several special guests, including The Chieftains, Alyth McCormack, Emma Stevens, The Isaacs, Kenny Aronoff and Kevin and Lily Costner. The album will also include Adkin’s cover of “We Three Kings,” which he recorded last Christmas.
Following the album’s release, Adkins will embark on The Christmas Show Tour, a theatrical and musical production beginning on Nov. 15. The production will alternate between Adkins telling stories and performing carols alongside a string quartet, female vocalists and a range of traditional instruments. The holiday tour is inspired by Adkin’s annual hosting duties at Disney World’s Candlelight Processional.
