Country icon Kenny Rogers will celebrate the 30th anniversary of his "Christmas & Hits Tour" this holiday season, venturing across the eastern half of the U.S. alongside Billy Dean.

Rogers doesn't waste any time, kicking off the roadwork the day after Thanksgiving (Nov. 25) in Columbus, OH, and touching down in 16 cities. The holiday run stops by theaters, casinos and auditoriums through a Dec. 23 performance in Westbury, NY.

Tickets for most dates on the outing are on sale now via Rogers' website.

Fellow country singer Billy Dean will join Rogers on the trek, which will feature holiday classics as well as original music ("The Gambler," "Lady," "Islands in the Stream," among others) from Rogers' extensive discography.

With more than 65 albums under his belt, Rogers released his most recent album, "The Love of God," earlier this year, making it his 21st Top 10 country album.

"It's one of the best things I've ever done," Nelson stated in a press release.

The album is available exclusively at Cracker Barrel stores nationwide.
