NewSong NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Grammy Award-nominated Integrity Music recording artist NewSong, along with critically-acclaimed Ardent/INO singer/songwriter Todd Agnew, will herald the holiday season with “The Christmas Promise Tour.” With special guests Matthew West and Britt Nicole, the tour will also feature Agnew’s acclaimed Christmas musical, “Do You See What I See?”

Kicking-off November 27 in Bolivar, Missouri, “The Christmas Promise Tour” is slated to hit 18 cities, including stops in Cincinnati; Norfolk, Nebraska; and West Columbia, South Carolina, before concluding December 20 in Champaign, Illinois.

NewSong will present selections from their best-selling recordings The Christmas Shoes and The Christmas Hope, highlighted by a performance of the group’s #1 mainstream radio hit, “The Christmas Shoes,” which spawned a best-selling novel by Donna VanLiere and a CBS Movie of the Week. In addition to sets from each artist, NewSong, Matthew West and Britt Nicole will perform several songs together.

Agnew’s musical, “Do You See What I See?” will be featured in the second half of the concert. A retelling of the Christmas story with the singer/songwriter’s original compositions and dialogue, the musical offers personal perspectives from eyewitnesses to Christ’s birth. In addition to Agnew, the cast of “Do You See What I See?” will include NewSong’s Nate Sallie and Billy Goodwin; Matthew West; and Britt Nicole.

Since its inception more than 25 years ago by original members Eddie Carswell and Billy Goodwin, Dove Award-winning and Grammy Award-nominated NewSong has recorded 17 albums and is a member of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. The group has 20 #1 singles, including such signature songs as “Miracles,” “Can’t Keep A Good Man Down,” “Jesus To The World,” “Psalm 40” and “Rescue.” In addition, The Christmas Shoes was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album in 2003. NewSong’s multi-artist “Winter Jam Tour Spectaculars,” which the group began hosting in 1995, have grown to become the largest attended annual Christian music tours in the industry.

Singer/songwriter Todd Agnew’s fourth studio recording, Better Questions, released in July from Ardent Records, in coordination with INO Records. Hailed by as “some of the bravest Christian songwriting you'll find all year,” the album features the hit single, “Our Great God,” a duet with Rebecca St. James. Agnew’s Do You See What I See? Performance Resource Disc was recently released. The double CD includes a variety of resource tools for groups presenting the Christmas musical.

Sparrow recording artist Matthew West catapulted onto the Christian music scene in 2003 with his debut single, "More,” which became the most played Christian AC song of 2004, according to R&R. Since that time, West’s two critically-acclaimed studio recordings, Happy (2003) and History (2005), have yielded such hits as “Only Grace,” “History” and “Next Thing You Know.” A sought-after songwriter, West’s cuts have been recorded by Rascal Flatts, Billy Ray Cyrus, Natalie Grant, and Mandisa, among many others. His latest album, Something To Say, is slated to release January 15.

Britt Nicole’s Sparrow Records debut, Say It, released in May. Co-produced by Double Dutch (Josiah Bell & Robert Marvin) and Tedd T, Say It features 11 tracks co-written by Britt Nicole and tackles issues plaguing this generation such as divorce and insecurity. She was also a featured artist on this year’s “Winter Jam Tour Spectacular.”
