LeAnn Rimes is bringing holiday cheer to Nashville! Rimes announces Joy — The Holiday Show at the Ryman, taking place on Saturday, December 10. Rimes will play Christmas songs, along with some of her biggest hits, as well as tracks from her forthcoming album, god’s work, out on September 16.

Rimes announced the news on social media, along with a video teasing her performance.

The 39-year-old previously announced that god’s work would include collaborations with Mickey Guyton, Sheila E., Ziggy Marley and more. The 12-track record, which celebrates Rimes’ 25th anniversary of the release of her legendary Blue album, will be released on September 16.

“For me, god’s work was all about a journey of reclamation, where humanity meets spirit,” Rimes says of the project. “The idea was to really dig into the duality of life, and I needed to be at the place I am in my life now in order to release this record whole-heartedly. It’s so empowering that I am finally there.”

Rimes celebrated the news of the new album with a  CMT Crossroads special, LeAnn Rimes & Friends, featuring Rimes along with Guyton, Carly PearceAshley McBryde, and Brandy Clark.

“It was such a magical and surreal experience, celebrating the past 25 years of my music as a full installment of CMT Crossroads,” Rimes said of taping the special. “And to share the stage with women who are each, so unique and truly standing in their own magnificence, to get to hear firsthand how I have, in some special way, influenced their artistry… it was humbling and special.

“This is such an expansive year for me, from my new album release later this year to my upcoming tour, and I could not think of a better way to kick it all off than to celebrate the past, present and future with this memorable show,” she added.

Rimes embarked on her the story … so far tour in May, which has several shows remaining on her calendar. Tickets for Joy — The Holiday Show at the Ryman will be available on Friday, July 29, at 10:00 AM local time here. All of Rimes’ music and upcoming shows can be found by visiting her website.
