WARSAW — Susie McEntire returned to Warsaw for her fifth-straight A Country Christmas Saturday night, Dec. 16, at Lakeview Middle School.
The country singer entertained the audience with classic Christmas songs, a few originals and several special accompaniments by the Chain Gang Quartet and Warsaw Christian’s choir, but it wasn’t just singing. McEntire slowed the concert down with several personal stories behind her songs.
McEntire got close and personal with the audience as she made her way to the floor during the concert. Randomly, she chose attendees to sing and dance with her during a traditional Christmas song. She ended the night greeting guests by her merchandise table, taking photos and signing autographs.
The performance was free to attend, but guests were encouraged to bring new, unwrapped gifts to donate to Toys for Tots. In all, eight large boxes of new toys were collected during the concert.
