Grammy Award-Winner Bryan White to Stop at Community Center for 'A Night to Remember Christmas Tour'
By Tourism Industry Partner
(STILLWATER, OKLA. / Oct. 20, 2010) — Tickets are on sale now for Grammy award-winner Bryan White who will celebrate the holiday season with his “A Night to Remember Christmas Tour' at the City of Stillwater Community Center on Thursday, Dec. 9 at 7 pm.
White has charted seventeen singles on Billboard's Country Charts, had six number one singles, two platinum records, two gold records, he joined forces with Shania Twain and together they took “From This Moment On” all the way up to number four on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart. He has garnered several awards for himself, including a Grammy, a CMA Horizon Award, and an ACM Top Male Vocalist award among them. And, with his songwriting, he helped several other artists climb the charts; Sawyer Brown and Diamond Rio both got in the top five with songs co-written by White and Wynonna, Joe Diffie, LeAnn Rimes and Lila McCann all recorded songs he co-wrote.
The accolades led him to various TV appearances such as 'The Tonight Show,' 'Late Night with David Letterman,” NBC's 'The Today Show,' and “CBS This Morning.” However, despite all of his music successes, it is an award from outside of the music arena that is probably the best indicator of who White really is; People Magazine named him one of their “fifty most beautiful people” in the world and everyone who knows him finds it easy to understand why.
White, a platinum-selling artist, is heading to his home state of Oklahoma to celebrate the holiday season. The concert will feature White with a full band, performing a two-part show. The first half of the evening features many of his hits along with songs from his recently released CD “Dustbowl Dreams.” The second half of the 90-minute set will showcase songs of the season, featuring selections from his new Christmas CD “A White Christmas.”
“There is no greater thrill for me, as an artist, than to play for audiences in my home state,” White said. “Christmas is just about my favorite time of the year, and I really love Christmas music. My goal every night is to make sure the audience leaves in the Christmas spirit. These Christmas shows really are special and I can’t wait to take the stage.”
Tickets are $20 per person and are available online at http://www.ticketstorm.com. Tickets will also be available at the door the night of the show. The City of Stillwater Community Center is located at 315 W. 8th Ave. Parking is free.
White’s Christmas tour will close out a busy year of touring across the United States, from Alaska to Florida. White looks forward to 2011 when his spring tour heads overseas for his first European tour. The tour has stops planned for Switzerland, Ireland, England and Scotland.
