Country music superstar Jennifer Nettles will bring her “Christmas with Jennifer Nettles” tour to the F.M. Kirby Center on Thursday, November 30 at 7:30 p.m.

Superstar entertainer Jennifer Nettles is one of today’s most admired and animated performers.  ASCAP has honored her songwriting prowess with five awards, including the emotionally charged, #1 PLATINUM hit “Stay” that also earned Jennifer GRAMMY®, ACM and CMA Awards.  As the first female artist to be the solo songwriter on an ACM Song of the Year winner since 1972, Nettles was also acknowledged with the Crystal Milestone Award.

Leading with her powerhouse vocals and vivacious energy, Nettles hit high notes throughout 2016, releasing two Big Machine Records’ albums – PLAYING WITH FIRE and TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS – in addition to back-to-back headline tours and holiday-themed dates.

She recently released the music video for her catchy latest single, “Hey Heartbreak” which is an anchor on her critically-acclaimed sophomore solo album, PLAYING WITH FIRE.

In 2015, Nettles made her Broadway debut as Roxy Hart in the Tony Award-winning, record-breaking musical Chicago.  In December, she reprised her role as Dolly Parton’s mom, Avie Lee Parton, in the holiday-themed sequel to the ratings success Coat of Many Colors, Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love.

Nettles also played a vital role on the inaugural season of American Supergroup, serving as a celebrity judge alongside Elle King, Aloe Blacc and Jason Scheff.  She was also added to the lineup for the annual C2C Festival in London, Glasgow and Dublin March 10-12 and headlined the 2017 Women’s Final Four concert in Dallas, TX on Saturday, April 1.

Before starting her solo career, Nettles served as lead singer of the popular country duo, Sugarland.

Poconos Events

There’s So Much On The Horizon in the Poconos, You’ll Be Head Over Hills!  Most likely, you’ll have a hard time deciding what to do next. You may decide to hit a food and wine festival to nourish your foodie soul – or maybe you’ll want to see a show. Great! You can do both. In fact, you can do a lot more than that. The Poconos has concerts, festivals, races, comedy shows, theater, carnivals, and county fairs.

The Poconos concerts run the gamut from local acts to national tours – and the genres run the gamut from rock to blues to country. Pocono Mountain festivals celebrate everything from beer to garlic to wieners! And what about the fantastic food concoctions you’ll run into on the midway at the county fairs -­‐ who’s up for deep-­‐fried Oreos?

All sorts of Pocono events are coming up, such as art and music festivals, NASCAR and Indy races, and more! In the Pocono Mountains, you can do whatever you want.
