NASHVILLE, Tenn.-GRAMMY®-nominated NewSong, creators and hosts of the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular-one of the music industry's biggest annual tours-announces a star-studded line-up of top Christian artists for their highly-anticipated "The Very Merry Christmas Tour."

GRAMMY®-nominees Jamie Grace and Sanctus Real, as well as chart-topping singer/songwriter Josh Wilson hit the road with NewSong beginning November 30 for the popular holiday tour, which will also introduce singer/songwriter Morgan Harper Nichols. Presented by Holt International, "The Very Merry Christmas Tour" will visit nine states this year before concluding December 20 in Brunswick, Ohio.

"The Christmas tour is always a highlight of our year," said Eddie Carswell, NewSong founding member. "Celebrating Christ's birth and worshipping Him with audiences around the country has become a favorite tradition for us. This year we're excited to be joined by four incredible artists who are also great friends of ours, and we can't wait to ring in the season together."

Headliners NewSong will showcase selections from their best-selling recordings The Christmas Shoes, The Christmas Hope, and last year's Swallow The Ocean: Christmas Edition digital exclusive. The group will also perform their blockbuster #1 hit, "The Christmas Shoes," which was co-written by Carswell and is a now-beloved standard heard around the world each holiday season.

At only 22-years-old, Jamie Grace has released two albums, earned a Dove Award for New Artist of the Year, garnered a GRAMMY® nomination and recently made history as one of only four female Christian artists to achieve RIAA Digital Gold certification for her hit single "Hold Me (feat. TobyMac)." Over the course of a career that spans 18 years, Sanctus Real has amassed eight #1 singles, seven Top 5 radio hits, two GRAMMY® nominations and a Dove Award. To date, the band's total digital track sales exceed one million. Singer/songwriter Josh Wilson was dubbed "the future of Christian pop" when he released his debut in 2008. Since then, Wilson has garnered multiple #1 radio singles and was named ASCAP's 2012 Christian Songwriter/Artist of the Year.

NewSong has recorded 18 albums, boasting 20 #1 Christian radio singles and a GRAMMY® Award nomination, in addition to being inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, among numerous other achievements. Founders of The Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, the #1 tour in the world (first quarter) for four consecutive years, NewSong's unparalleled 30-year ministry has been highlighted by such defining songs as "Arise, My Love" "Rescue" and "The Same God."
