The Temple Theater Box Office has a waiting list for those still wanting tickets – just call 936-633-5454 to get on the list.

“Every year I look forward to our Christmas tour,” says WYNONNA, “It’s so easy to get caught up in the perfectionism that this time of the year often brings. I love singing the music that inspires me to remember the real reason for the season. My hope is that people can come to the show, forget about their ‘to do’ list and, for the time we are together, simply enjoy themselves.” Her Christmas concert features traditional favorites like “O Holy Night” and “Ave Maria” as well as a mix of hits and new releases.
WYNONNA’s rich and commanding voice has sold over 30 million albums worldwide spanning a remarkable 33-year career. Charting countless singles, including 20 #1 hits and over 60 industry awards, she was dubbed by Rolling Stone as “the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline.” Her solo career began 1992 with her quintuple platinum debut, Wynonna. That set spawned four number one hits, and it was the bestselling country album ever by a female artist at that time. In 1994, Wynonna received the coveted Top Female Vocalist of the Year trophy at the ACM Awards. Engaging the soulful bluesy side of her voice, Wynonna went on to sell more than 10 million albums and reach new creative heights with six chart toppers of her own. Not bad for a girl who started her musical career in Austin, TX at the age of 13.
