Focusing on Christmas carols that will put a smile on your face, bring your entire family to this family friendly event.

Singer-songwriter Carrie Hassler first jumped on the music scene late in 2006, living a dream since she was a child. The initial response has been nothing short of amazing. Since this late beginning she has garnered great attention and crossed many genres of music over the past several years. Carrie has received the Country Song of the Year Award by Strictly Country Magazine, two IBMA nominations, appeared on the cover of Bluegrass Music Profiles magazine and more. 

Within the past year, Carrie hit the coveted #1 spot on SiriusXM Radio Bluegrass Junction’s Most Played Tracks in October 2012 with her song, “Luxury Liner.” “Luxury Liner” is from her latest project, The Distance, and was the first single release from this long awaited new album.

Carrie’s concert will include well-loved Christmas songs from her childhood. Following the City of Crossville Christmas Parade on Saturday, Dec. 8, An Evening of Christmas Carols with Carrie Hassler will put you in the holiday spirit.
