The furthest west the current routing has Berry is Davenport and Clive, Iowa, on Nov. 28 and 29. Georgia is definitely the luckiest state on this tour as the singer/songwriter will be playing the Peach State eight times on the 19-date tour.

Regarding the anniversary, Berry said: “I am so blessed to be celebrating 20 years of our Christmas tour … I have come to know and love so many people, venues and towns across America through this tour and I am grateful to have the opportunity to share the message of Christmas through music that means so very much to me.”

Berry hasn’t released a Christmas album since 2002’s Celebrate This Christmas and O Holy Night Live. His most recent work is What I Love the Most from this year.
