It feels like we’ve seen a new show every night for the past week, and I’m sharing what’s worth your time…

I know the holidays are busy, but I feel like I haven’t spend an evening at home in over a week! We’ve seen a lot of shows lately and I wanted to give a quick recap in case you were thinking of seeing any for yourself:

Nashville’s Nutcracker
A holiday tradition not to be missed. I love the spin the Nashville Ballet puts on this iconic holiday ballet. You may notice a few updates to this year’s version, most notably the snow scene. I will say, Clara was a standout the night we attended. That being said, I did experience a lot of emotions watching the youth cast knowing my daughter performed as a Garden Fairy for years and is now a freshman in college!

Pentatonix: A Christmas Spectacular
Before Pentatonix started their show, I (audibly) questioned how 5 humans without a band could fill up an arena stage. Any doubts I may have had were quickly dispelled. Not only were they as good in person, if not better than their recordings, the energy was palpable. (They did say the Nashville show was the favorite of their career). Make sure to check out their TikTok account for how we as an audience got to help make a Christmas tree for one of their songs. Seriously though, they sang for at least 2 hours with a 15-minute intermission and even a 2-song encore. Crazy good.

Lauren Daigle – Behold: A Christmas Tour
When I told a friend I was going to see Lauren Daigle at the Ryman, they described her as the Christian “Adele”. It’s true; her voice is unparalleled. The Louisiana native has a rasp and scat throughout many of her songs that give each a soulful flare. And the horns on stage definitely gave me Harry Connick Jr. vibes. While I loved seeing her at the iconic Ryman Auditorium, I wish she did more than just stand and sing. I love her joy, but after seeing Pentatonix, I wish there was a little more ‘movement’ to her show.

Grand Ole Opry
I don’t care if you think you like country music or not, if you haven’t been to the Grand Ole Opry, you have to go. Even if you have gone, go again, because every show is different. Each act only performs 3 songs, so even if you aren’t a fan, don’t worry, it will be done soon! We recently saw The War and Treaty perform and they brought the house down with their husband and wife harmonies, along with a beautiful mix of hymns, Americana and gospel soul.

Tonight I’m screening the new Avatar film, so I’ll be sure to weigh-in on that tomorrow!


If “finding your passion” has become a burden instead of a joy, I pray you simply find time to take small steps today toward a renewed sense of purpose in your life.
