Trace Adkins is once again spreading some holiday cheer on “The Christmas Tour.” The country star’s trek features material from his 2013 seasonal effort, “The King’s Gift.” And he’s feeling better about the trek on his second time around. Following his inaugural run last winter, Trace tells “country Weekly” he knows “what to expect.” He admits he was “very anxious about it” last year, because it’s “almost like a one-man play as opposed to a straight-up concert.” He admits he was “a little apprehensive not knowing how it would come across” and if he “would be able to do this night after night after night.” But now that he knows what he’s in for, Trace believes this year “will be a little smoother.” Adkins launched “The Christmas Tour” in West Point, New York Friday night, and performed in Massachusetts over the weekend. His next show will be in New Brunswick, New Jersey on Tuesday.

Adkins will play six more shows before taking a short break for Thanksgiving. He’ll resume the trek right after the holiday with shows throughout the Midwest and Southern U.S. The run includes a two-night stand in Nashville on December 11th and 12th. Trace will end the tour in Clearwater, Florida on December 21st.
