Chris Tomlin to make Grand Ole Opry debut tomorrow

Chris Tomlin’s name will be added to the list of legends who have stepped into Nashville’s world famous Grand Ole Opry circle when he makes his Opry debut Friday, December 4. The evening will also feature performances from multiple GRAMMY® Award winners Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs and more.

For a list of additional performers, or to purchase tickets, visit The Grand Ole Opry’s official website, where Tomlin’s new Christmas album ADORE: Christmas Songs Of Worship is currently featured.

ADORE released in late October, debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Holiday Albums Chart, also topping the same chart on iTunes.

In support of the album, Tomlin is launching his “ADORE Christmas Tour” this weekend, featuring special guests Crowder and Lauren Daigle. Kicking off December 5 in Knoxville, the sold-out tour will make eight stops across the country. Click here for additional information.

ADORE is featured in the most recent issue of People Country along with a free download of the upbeat track “It’s Christmas,” available on People.com.

The New York Times included ADORE in its holiday album roundup, calling it “quaveringly sincere” praising Tomlin’s “clear, agreeable” voice. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution also applauded ADORE saying “not only does Tomlin possess a soothing voice that imbues his lyrics with deep emotion, he also has an uncanny knack for melody,” while Nashville Lifestyles featured the album in their holiday roundup as well.

CCM Magazine called ADORE “an inspired album from beginning to end,” while Worship Leader said “it’s classic-sounding Tomlin as he humbly covers these songs with a worshipful tone.” NewReleaseToday called the album “refreshing,” and Hallels referred to it as a “treasure trove.”

ADORE: Christmas Songs of Worship is available for purchase here.
