Carl Jackson Home for Christmas Concerts to Resume in December in Louisville

The Red Hills Art Foundation has announced the resumption of a special holiday tradition for Louisville, Winston County and country music lovers all across the south. Two “Carl Jackson ‘Home for Christmas’” concerts will be held on Saturday, December 18. A matinee performance at 4 p.m. and an evening performance at 7 p.m. will be held. Full details about the two concerts will be announced at a later date including the venue, ticket pricing and purchase information.

Jackson is a multi-Grammy award winning artist born on the third floor of the historic Strand Theater in Louisville. He gained world-wide fame touring and playing banjo for Jim and Jesse McReynolds and later, with Glen Campbell. He is a member of the elite Mississippi Country Music Hall of Fame. In addition to being what Campbell described as “the world’s greatest banjo player,” Carl is equally recognized for his talents as a songwriter and vocalist.

The concerts also feature several of Carl’s closest Nashville friends and entertainers who have adopted the Home for Christmas concerts as an essential part of their own family’s Christmas celebrations as they have evolved over the last two decades.
Red Hills Arts Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization which has, among other things, used proceeds from these concerts to preserve the historic Strand Theater in downtown Louisville which is now undergoing major renovations.

There were no concerts held last Christmas due to the COVID pandemic. “Carl’s ‘Home for Christmas’ concerts have become a Louisville Christmas tradition,” RHAF president Mary Snow said. “We are thrilled to be able to resume our sponsorship of this outstanding entertainment and feel certain that when tickets go on sale, both concerts will sell-out in a very short time. Mark your calendars and be watching for more information,” Snow added.
