LeAnn Rimes to Star in Hallmark Christmas Special, Embark on Sixth Annual Holiday Tour
In keeping with tradition, LeAnn Rimes will embark on her sixth annual Christmas tour in December of 2018. This holiday season, however, the performances will be extra special: The country star has announced that she will be making her Hallmark movie debut with the new original TV movie and soundtrack, It's Christmas, Eve. Press play above to watch the trailer for the upcoming film.
With a premiere dated slotted for Nov. 10, 2018, It's Christmas, Eve was produced by Dave Aude and Darrell Brown, as well as Rimes herself. Three of the songs featured in the film -- "It's Christmas, Eve," "The Gift of Your Love" and "You and Me and Christmas" -- were created especially for the project, and will also appear on the movie's accompanying original soundtrack, which will be available on Oct. 12. On Nov. 30, Rimes will embark on the 11-stop You and Me and Christmas Tour, which kicks off in Wenahatchee, Wash., and will proceed through select cities along the West Coast.
"I am really excited about the You and Me and Christmas Tour this year," Rimes explained in a press release. "It's my sixth holiday tour, and I'm particularly looking forward to singing some new music from It's Christmas, Eve and sharing it with the fans."
The tour will feature a selection of highlights from the film's original soundtrack, as well as the holiday classic Rimes' fans know and love and a sampling of some of the greatest hits of the country star's career. Tickets are available via the venues as well as at Rimes' website, and fans can choose from a variety of merchandise packages and meet and greet options.
