This too was a return performance after two sold-out shows in that market in 2005. Additional sold-out dates include Portland, Seattle and two shows in Smith’s hometown, Nashville, Tennessee.

“I love performing with a symphony; it’s incredible, night after night, to get to hear an orchestra fill a room with music – and Christmas music! Melinda and The Katinas are amazing talents and wonderful people to tour with. We all had a great time,” says Smith, of the run.
