Trace Adkins

Country singer Trace Adkins is just one of a host of artists to perform as the Grand Ole Opry unveils its newest holiday season tradition.

If you’re the sort who is ready for Christmas halfway through finishing your annual allotment of turkey, the Grand Ole Opry is here for you this year.

Beginning the first Sunday after Thanksgiving and running each Sunday through Dec. 12, the Grand Ole Opry will unveil a new tradition of celebrating the Christmas season with holiday-centric performances.

The “Opry Country Christmas” shows will be hosted from the Grand Ole Opry House by Larry Gatlin of the Gatlin Brothers.

Each show will feature a host of familiar Opry faces, including the Gatlin Brothers, Riders in the Sky, Mandy Barnett and Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie McCoy.

Alongside a few special guests along the way, each Sunday one spotlight artist will join the lineup, including Steve Wariner, Lorrie Morgan, Josh Turner and Trace Adkins, rounding out performances that will be totally composed of seasonal standards.

All “Opry Country Christmas” shows will air on WSM Radio as well as WSM and Opry digital platforms.

Tickets for “Opry Country Christmas” are on sale now and can be purchased at opry.com.

Vince Gill and Amy Grant’s Opry performances will carry on as usual in tandem with the new tradition, running Dec. 13-22.
