Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith Prepare To Ring In The Holidays With Annual Christmas Tour

Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith are teaming up once again this year for their annual Christmas Tour, which will include Republic recording artist Jordan Smith, Season 9 winner of NBC’s The Voice, and a full symphony orchestra at each performance.

Presented by Balsam Hill, the 22-city tour will launch Nov. 11 in Omaha, Nebraska, and travel to major markets across the U.S., including Houston, Dallas, Washington, D.C., Seattle, Denver, Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Tampa, and more.

“I started looking forward to this year’s tour after the final encore of last year’s tour!” exclaims Michael W. Smith. “Performing with Amy and Jordan – in front of a full symphony orchestra – is about as good as it gets for me!”

“Michael, Jordan and I have been looking forward to touring together again all year!” confirms Grant. “We had so much fun together last year, and it felt like our creative gifts complemented one another in a unique way. As we started to plan the show, it was our goal to enhance people’s experience of the Christmas season by providing them a night of exquisite music and a message of hope.”

In support of their longstanding relationship with Compassion International, Smith and Grant are exclusively meeting with as many as 200 people in each city who sponsor a child through the organization prior to the concert and through the website The “Compassion Meet & Greet” is an opportunity to learn more about the Compassion International’s child sponsorship experience and will include a photo opportunity with the artists.
