Country superstar LeAnn Rimes will sing her popular hits and Christmas favorites with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra in a concert Saturday, Dec. 4, at Robinson Center Music Hall.

Her debut album, “Blue,” has sold 8 million copies. Expect to hear such holiday classics as “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” “A Different Kind of Christmas,” “White Christmas,” “All I Want for Christmas,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “What a Wonderful World,” “The Christmas Song,” “Just Love Me,” “Miss You Like Christmas” and “O Holy Night.”
