    With his snowy beard and hair, Kenny Rogers could be a relative (distant, of course) of Santa Claus!

    That American treasure known as Kenny Rogers will celebrate the 30th Anniversary of his Christmas & Hits Tour in 2011 with a festive show featuring live performances of holiday classics and his biggest hits. The one-of-a-kind vocalist and entertainer will perform at venues across America, joined by special guest Billy Dean, beginning on Nov. 25 in Columbus, Ohio and wrapping Dec. 23 in Westbury, New York. We cannot wait! We <3 Kenny!

    Rogers is known for creating an inviting atmosphere with his critically acclaimed Christmas & Hits Tour, which has become a holiday tradition in its own right since its start 30 years ago. He will deliver heartfelt performances of traditional and original holiday songs such as "White Christmas," "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let it Snow!," "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On an Open Fire)," "Joy to the World," "O Holy Night," and "'Til the Season Comes 'Round Again," the way only he can, with the help of local choirs and children chosen to perform in each city of the tour. Rogers will also sing many of the classics from his overflowing catalog of hits ("The Gambler," "Lady," "She Believes In Me," "Islands In The Stream," "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town," "Lucille," "Through The Years" and many others).

    "30 years is a long time to do anything, but a Christmas show seems to get easier every year, especially when I get a chance to work with friends like Billy Dean," says Rogers. "He always brings a great energy and beautiful music to the event. Have a Merry Christmas, and enjoy the show." Christmas can't come soon enough, courtesy of Kenny R.
