2017 Holiday Tour Launches Nov. 11, Featuring Jordan Smith, Winner of 'The Voice'
Grant, Smith Compete to Decorate Most Beautiful Tree While Fans Vote in Balsam Hill's 'An Unforgettable Christmas' Sweepstakes
NASHVILLE, Nov. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This weekend, multi-platinum, GRAMMY® winners Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith will kick off their popular Christmas tour Nov. 11, joined for the second consecutive year by Republic recording artist Jordan Smith, Season 9 winner of NBC's "The Voice." Featuring a full symphony orchestra at each performance, this seasonal celebration has a history of sold-out performances across the country, making it nothing less than a holiday tradition. And nothing says "tradition" more than Christmas trees at Christmastime, which is why both Amy and Michael are thrilled to have Balsam Hill® on board as the title sponsor for this year's Christmas dates.
As the industry leader in lifelike artificial Christmas trees, ornaments and other Christmas décor, Balsam Hill will play a prominent role on the Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith Christmas Tour. Concert attendees will see some of Balsam Hill's beautiful, lifelike trees adorning the stage at each of the 22 concert dates throughout November and December.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith this year," says Balsam Hill Chief Marketing Officer Kristen Gasior. "Our stunning artificial Christmas trees and décor make a magical backdrop to their beautiful voices, and we look forward to sharing Christmas cheer with everyone!"
A deep-rooted Christmas tradition shared by Grant and Smith is the effort put into decorating their Christmas trees each year. So this year, to kick off and celebrate the relationship with Balsam Hill, Amy and Michael are staging a friendly tree-decorating competition with their own Balsam Hill Christmas trees and ornaments. A social media-driven sweepstakes titled "An Unforgettable Christmas with Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith: Vote For Your Favorite Christmas Look!" is currently underway, and Balsam Hill will give two participants the chance to win the same Balsam Hill Christmas trees, along with tickets to the Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith Christmas Tour. Participants may enter by voting for their favorite tree here. The decorating challenge has been fun for the artists and has even spiked a bit of a competitive streak in both.
"I'm so pleased to have Balsam Hill on our tour with us this Christmas," Amy says. "Their trees are so natural, so beautiful, and will become a part of my family's Christmases for years to come. And I do plan on beating Michael in the tree-decorating contest!"
"Can you imagine a better sponsor than Balsam Hill for a Christmas tour?" Michael adds. "Looking through their site is an adventure in itself. If it's Christmas and it's beautiful, Balsam Hill makes it. And I'm having a blast challenging Amy in this competition. I think I have an unfair advantage because of my extreme love for the Christmas season."
Combining for a vast collection of critically-acclaimed holiday albums between them, the 2017 Christmas tour will showcase selections spanning the artists' expansive Christmas repertoires, including their most recent releases, Grant's Tennessee Christmas, Michael W. Smith's The Spirit of Christmas and Jordan Smith's 'Tis The Season.

About Balsam Hill:
Founded ten years ago in Redwood City, Calif., Balsam Hill is committed to creating the best Christmas trees on the market. Founder Thomas Harman was inspired to start Balsam Hill by a family member who was allergic to live trees but wanted to create a festive atmosphere in his home during the holidays. When Thomas' search for a lifelike artificial Christmas tree came up empty-handed, our mission was born to develop the most realistic and luxurious artificial trees. To accomplish this mission, our designers carefully craft trees to mimic nature using site visits and cuttings from live trees as a guide. Balsam Hill holds several patented and trademarked technology that brings the holidays to life including ultra-realistic True Needle™ branches, unique Color+Clear™ or Candlelight™ LED lights, and innovative Flip Tree™ technology.
