The Oak Ridge Boys 2016 Christmas Tour Comes to North Iowa
The Oak Ridge Boys have announced the details of their 27th annual Christmas tour, dubbed the Christmas Celebration Tour for 2016.
The Oaks will begin their 2016 Christmas Celebration Tour on Nov. 1 and hit 16 states throughout the U.S. before wrapping up on Dec. 22. They will spend three days in Branson, Mo., to start the trek off, then head to places such as Lake Charles, La.; Milwaukee, Wis.; Jacksonville, Fla.; and Green Bay, Wis.; a full list of cities can be seen below.
On their holiday tour, the Oak Ridge Boys will play a mix of the music from their six Christmas CDs; fans can expect to not only hear traditional tunes, but also romantic and funny ones as well. In addition to singing, the Oaks also take turns speaking about what Christmas means to them in what they call their "rocking chair" segment.
“Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love the positive things about the season ... the joy, happiness, giving, sharing, time with family and gifts. The beautiful lights and decorations. Christmas music. Special food," shares Duane Allen in a press release. "And most of all, the true meaning, which, of course, is celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ."
