TUNICA, Miss. – Join platinum-selling artist Phil Vassar and singer-songwriter Deana Carter for an evening of Christmas classics and original holiday music when the pair brings the “Coming Home for Christmas” tour to the Gold Strike Theatre on Saturday, Dec. 17 at 9 p.m.

In anticipation of their first tour together, Vassar and Carter co-wrote two original songs with No. 1 hit songwriter and Songwriters Hall of Fame member, Steve Dorff, titled "Coming Home for Christmas" and "Brand New Year." The singles will be released this fall and be featured on Vassar’s upcoming EP release.

Phil Vassar’s reign of signature songs include 10 No. 1 singles and 26 Top 40 hits, including Carlene, Just Another Day in Paradise, Six-Pack Summer, When I Love You, and many more. Vassar’s musical legacy includes the release of nine albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, ACM’s Top New Male Vocalist and sold-out shows across the country. Vassar has penned hits for many artists, such as Collin Raye, Alan Jackson and Tim McGraw.

A native of Nashville, Deana Carter took the music industry by storm with her successful multi-platinum international debut Did I Shave My Legs For This? Her hit, Strawberry Wine, blends country and retro-rock, sprinkled with the folksy singer/songwriter qualities that have garnered Carter lasting respect and wide acclaim.
