‘The Voice’ Knoxville winner Chris Blue to perform in 2018 “Christmas at the Smoky Mountain Opry” 


The Smoky Mountain Opry™ Theater in Pigeon Forge will have a “Blue, Blue, Christmas” this Christmas season! Season 12 winner of ‘The Voice,” Chris Blue, from Knoxville, Tenn., will star in the spectacular “Christmas at the Smoky Mountain Opry™” Christmas variety show, Nov. 1, 2018 – Jan. 5, 2019.  Blue will join a huge cast of over 30 performers in the largest Christmas show in Pigeon Forge. The acclaimed “Don’t Miss Show” (Southern Living magazine) has been a fixture in Pigeon Forge, for the past seven years, and is well known for its over-the-top dazzling array of festive holiday music as well as singing, dancing, comedy, special effects, lavish sets, gorgeous costumes and heartfelt entertainment.

“Our entire Smoky Mountain Opry Theater team is thrilled to have Chris Blue join us this year for our phenomenal high-energy Christmas show, Christmas at the Smoky Mountain Opry,” said David Fee, president and chief executive officer of Fee/Hedrick Family Entertainment Group.  “Chris’s incredible talent lends itself perfectly to our popular Christmas show.  He is just an amazingly gifted young man and he executes all of his songs exceptionally well.


What You Can Expect

“Our dynamic Christmas show has everything from the area’s largest live nativity, to Santa and his dancing elves, and amazing aerialists. Live holiday music galore with fantastic singers, dancers and musicians, and meticulously choreographed numbers including the march of the soldiers,” Fee said.  “We will have lots of live animals, including real camels,horses, and donkeys on their way to see baby Jesus in Bethlehem. Additionally, there will be lots of special effects such as flying angels, snow falling softly inside the theater, and a wild laser light show.  We hope to become a treasured Christmas tradition for families who visit the Smoky Mountain Winterfest Celebration. Come join us for an unforgettable Blue, Blue Christmas!”

“I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to perform at the Smoky Mountain Opry Theater this Christmas season,” Blue said.  “I have attended the show before.  My brother, Julius, played keyboard at the Smoky Mountain Opry Theater and we came to watch him. I never thought I would have the opportunity to sing here one day in this magnificent theater and now that day has come.”

Chris Blue, a 28- year old worship leader, took first place in Season 12 of ‘The Voice’, landed a record deal and a $100,000 prize.  He was the very last artist selected in the blind audition and won it all.  In the year since he won “The Voice,” Blue has spent hours assembling a team, building his brand, and taking speaking engagements. While he is busy, he also finds time for recording, touring, and performing music.  He released two singles, “Blue Blood Blues” and “Humanity” in 2017.  Chris Blue is currently preparing for his upcoming performances in “Christmas at The Smoky Mountain Opry”™ and also has new music coming to ITunes and other platforms in 2019.  “If Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson and Prince all had a baby, that is my sound,” he said.

“God gave me the best Christmas gift of all,” Chris Blue said.  “My voice is a gift from God.  I have a gift I did not ask for.  I didn’t deserve it, but God gave it to me and I am here to serve people for a much bigger calling than the gift itself.  This opportunity is about the people I have to serve.”

“I am constantly learning and growing and getting better every day,” he said.  Blue states, “I want to be the best in everything I do so I can serve people. I freely give excellence.  It frees me up.  I want to impact lives and change people.  If God didn’t’ want me to have the responsibility he wouldn’t have given it to me. Christmas is my favorite time of year and performing at The Smoky Mountain Opry show is very special for me.”

Blue and the rest of the cast will perform at the theater at 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. There are additional shows at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.  For more information or reservations call the theater’s box office (865) 428-7469 or 1-800-768-1170 or visit http://www.SmokyMountainOpry.com.
