– Wynonna is going simple this Christmas. At least that's the name of her tour - A Simpler Christmas - which she announced on Thursday.
Wynonna, who is touring with her band The Big Noise, will launch the second of the tour in early December in Springfield, Ohio. She will sing her holiday favorites as well as her greatest hits.
"Every year I look forward to our Christmas tour," said Wynonna. "It's so easy to get caught up in the perfectionism and the expectations that this time of the year often brings. I love singing the music that inspires me to remember the real reason for the season. My hope is that people can come to the show, forget about their 'to do' list and, for the time we are together, simply enjoy themselves."
Wynonna is working with husband/producer/drummer Cactus Moser on solo material for her eighth studio album due out 2015 on Curb Records.
The couple also recently released "Follow Me," an original song for the film "The Hornet's Nest" which features real footage to tell the story of an elite group of U.S. troops sent on a mission deep inside one of Afghanistan's valleys.
