From a press release:

After taking her At Christmas Tour to the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg last year, it was announced today that award-winning country singer/songwriter Sara Evans will bring this limited-engagement holiday show to Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe on Saturday, Dec. 1 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, which are $29 for regular seating and $34 for premium seating, go on sale this Friday, Aug. 24 at 11 a.m. at ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster outlets, the Penn’s Peak box office (325 Maury Rd., Jim Thorpe), and Roadies Restaurant and Bar (325 Maury Rd., Jim Thorpe). Penn’s Peak box office and Roadies Restaurant ticket sales are walk-up only; no phone orders.

Multi-platinum-selling country entertainer Sara Evans will reprise her popular, limited At Christmas Tour in 2018 with nine seasonal shows created to deliver the holiday spirit to young and old. “At Christmas,” her first full-length Christmas recording, is a 10-song collection featuring well-known holiday classics, including “Silent Night,” “Winter Wonderland,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” and “O Come All Ye Faithful,” plus the seasonal original song and title track written by Shane Stevens and Toby Lightman.

Since emerging in the late 1990s, Evans has had a prolific recording career with five No. 1 country singles, including “No Place That Far,” “Suds in the Bucket, “A Real Fine Place to Start,” “Born to Fly,” and “A Little Bit Stronger,” which spent two weeks in the top spot and is certified platinum by the RIAA. Her “stunning, country voice” (Rolling Stone) has earned her the prestigious Academy of Country Music Top Female vocalist accolade, as well as numerous American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Country Music Association, CMT, and Grammy Award nominations. In addition, she received the CMA-awarded Video of the Year honors for her hit chart-topping single “Born to Fly” from her double-platinum album of the same name. Her discography also includes the platinum-selling studio albums “Real Fine Place” and “Restless” and the gold-certified “No Place That Far.”

Evans continues to forge a bold, creative path with the launch of Born to Fly Records, distributed by Sony RED, and her highly anticipated eighth studio album, “Words,” which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. The project has been dubbed the album of her lifetime that “captures an artist in full musical flight” (Associated Press) and was named among Billboard and Rolling Stone’s favorite country albums of 2017.

In addition to a prolific country music career, Evans has been honored for her philanthropic work and was presented the NAB Education Foundation’s Service to America Leadership Award in 2018. A Red Cross ambassador, she received the national Crystal Cross award for her work with the disaster relief organization and recently raised more than $10,000 for the CMA Foundation and music education from the sale of her ONEHope Sara Evans Signature Series 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
