Country music fans know that when the holidays come around that they are in for a treat from their favorite stars. For 2017, two essential holiday-favorites, recording artist Phil Vassar and country music darling Kellie Pickler, are teaming up this season for a special Christmas tour coming to Cole. In honor of the tour, Pickler and Vassar teamed up to release a new Christmas single this holiday season called “The Naughty List.”

Phil Vassar was known to hard-core county music fans long before his first big hit “Carlene” for his songwriting credits. Having written songs for well-known country artists Tim McGraw, Jo Dee Messina, and Collin Raye, Vassar has made an name for himself as an artist with songs like “Just Another Day in Paradise,” “Six-Pack Summer” and “I’ll Take That as a Yes.”

American Idol alum and Albemarle, NC native, Kellie Pickler performed at the Cole as a part of the “Hometown Country” performance with Bucky Covington in October 2012. Pickler is starring in her own reality show on CMT entitled “I Love Kellie Pickler.” She is known for her hits “Red High Heels,” “I Wonder” and “Best Days of Your Life.”
