– Phil Vassar and Kellie Pickler are teaming up for a Christmas tour starting in late November, it was announced today.
In honor of "A Christmas Tour," Pickler and Vassar teamed up to release a new Christmas single this holiday season called "The Naughty List," written by Vassar and Juliana Songs, and co-produced by Vassar and Dane Bryan, who also co-produced Vassar's first Christmas album, "Noel."
"I absolutely love Kellie, and am so excited to go on tour with her," said Vassar, who has completed a Christmas tour every year since 2009. "She is an amazingly talented lady, and everyone who comes to our show this holiday season is going to be in for a fun time."
"Noel" came out in 2009.
"So excited that Phil and I are hitting the road together this Christmas season," said Pickler. "Being able to tour with Phil is an amazing honor...he's an incredibly talented artist. We're both looking forward to spreading as much cheer as we can this holiday season."
