She will, for the FIRST TIME, do a Gospel Music and Hits tour singing many of her hit songs and the Gospel songs that her fans love to hear.

Carroll Baker has won more awards and received more accolades than she could ever imagine, but this concert tour is different, it’s not about the awards, it’s about the music she loves and she will sing it straight from her heart.

However, it is the awards and the support of her dedicated fans that has allowed her to do the tour and she is very aware of that. Carroll Baker has won multiple Country Female Vocalist of the year awards, both at the Canadian Country Music Awards and the Juno Awards. She has been named Entertainer of the year in Canada and International Female Entertainer of the year in the United States. She has won best Selling Album of the year for both Country and Gospel Music and holds the record of having the most consecutive number one records in Canadian Country music. That record has not been broken to this day.

She is a member of The Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame, and a proud member of the Order of Canada.

She has toured parts of the United States and has wowed fans from her hometown in Nova Scotia to such famous venues as the London Palladium and Wembley Stadium in London, England. Now she is about to wow fans all across Canada with her new tour, Carroll Baker’s Gospel and Hits Tour.

When asked why she was doing this, she simply stated “I love country music and gospel music. I have wanted to do this for a long time and more important than anything, my fans have been asking for it. I can’t think of a better way to express my heart, my soul and who I really am than by singing these amazing songs. I hope everyone will enjoy the show as much as I know I am going to enjoy doing it.”
