Don Amero is sharing the holiday cheer this year with his annual festive event, Amero Little Christmas. The JUNO-nominated, multi-award-winning singer/songwriter Don Amero decks the halls at the Burton Cummings Theatre on December 17 with special guests Kyle McKearney and Raquel Cole. Amero has had another busy year, earning a Canadian Country Music Award nomination for Album of the Year for his latest full-length release, Nothing Is Meaningless, plenty of live music events including a main stage spot at Dauphin's Countryfest and a journey on the CP Holiday Train, releasing new song "Ain’t Too Late", and much more. Amero continues to be an important and inspiring voice, including his powerful duet "Let 'Em Lie" with Kyle McKearney in honour of Residential School victims. He also has a new children's book, These Roots of Love, to help young people and their families navigate grief and loss. 

To celebrate the season, we have his tune "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" for you as this week's musical gift. Unwrap it and the whole album, don't miss Amero Little Christmas, and stay tuned for so much more from Don Amero in 2023!
