Martina McBride celebrates the holidays with "The Joy of Christmas" trek
Country songstress Martina McBride has filled out her fall itinerary, adding a holiday tour dubbed "The Joy of Christmas" to the mix.
The Kansas native will continue her current schedule Sept. 28 in Atlanta, followed by a handful of casino shows in October throughout the South. The performer will also make an Oct. 1 stop at Nashville's iconic Bluebird Cafe for a special appearance.
"The Joy of Christmas" outing will get underway Nov. 9 in Jacksonville, FL, and work its way through seven additional markets before the Christmas holidays arrive.
McBride unveiled "The Essential Martina McBride," featuring 40 of her biggest hits, in October via RCA Nashville. She's planning on releasing a new studio effort in early 2014, according to a recent interview with CBS News.
"It's gonna be awesome," McBride said. "We're feverishly working on it and getting it done. I'm really really excited to be back in the studio making new music."
McBride's most recent studio album entitled "Eleven" hit retailers Oct. 11, 2011. That 11-track collection peaked at No. 10 on The Billboard 200 and at No. 4 on the magazine's Top Country Albums chart.
