Meh, it happens.

From a press release:

Superstar singer/songwriter Martina McBride will share her
favorite time of the year with music lovers across the country once again, as

WV on Friday, November 29 and wrap up in Chicago on Saturday, December 21.

"This
is such a fun and special tour to do," said Martina. "I love bringing Christmas
to life on stage and putting everyone in the Christmas spirit. My favorite part
of the show is the Q&A where I go into the audience. You never know what is
going to happen, and the spontaneity is something I really enjoy."
