With four Christmas albums already under his belt, multiple Dove Award winner Steven Curtis Chapman will be singing a large swath of his Christmas songs on his 2014 JOY: The Christmas Tour. The tour will feature five-time GRAMMY® nominee Brandon Heath and special guest singer/songwriter Jillian Edwards. JOY: The Christmas Tour will begin in Houston, Texas, November 29 and make its way throughout the East and Midwest until the week of Christmas.
Collectively, Chapman's Christmas albums have sold nearly 1.5 million copies, His most recent Yuletide offering is 2012's "JOY." On the tour, you can expect Chapman to be singing slections from JOY. He will also be presenting highlights from his three previous holiday offerings: The Music of Christmas (1995), the Hallmark exclusive Christmas is All in the Heart (2003) and All I Really Want for Christmas (2005). Fans can also expect some surprises as the award-winning singer/songwriter reworks some of his biggest hits to fit the holiday mood.
Throughout the night, the legendary artist will also be collaborating with his tourmates, Brandon Heath and Jillian Edwards. Heath will perform cuts from Christmas Is Here, his debut holiday effort, which released last year to critical acclaim. Meanwhile, audiences will also have the opportunity to meet Chapman's daughter-in-law, Jillian Edwards, and hear songs from her forthcoming Christmas EP.
"The Christmas season is my very favorite time of year, and I'm so looking forward to this get-together of friends and family," Chapman shares. "My band, crew and I have been working on the plan for the tour and the song list, and it's going to be a great night of caroling, worshipping, storytelling and fun as we celebrate the hope and the joy of our Savior's birth together. We're praying God will use this time, and we hope you can join us."
