LeAnn Rimes has officially named her new Christmas album Today is Christmas and has announced a new tour to support it to launch December 4th, 2015.
“I wait for Christmas all year long; it’s my absolute favorite holiday;” Rimes says in a statement. “I can’t wait to share some of my new, original Christmas songs with my fans, as well as my favorite classics. I am looking forward to making more holiday memories with my fans this year.”
The 32-year-old, who released One Christmas — Chapter 1 last year, will also release a new Christmas album, Today Is Christmas, in conjunction with the tour. The project is due out in the fall, though an exact release date has not yet been announced.
Rimes says that she enjoys performing on her Christmas tour more than any of her other concerts throughout the year.
“I love everything about the holidays,” she explains, “and want to share the magic and joy of the season with my fans.”
