- STAFF REPORT Compiled by Susan Pierce.

Jim Brickman returns to Chattanoog­a on Monday, Dec. 23, with his uplifting, family-friendly, holiday concert “Jim Brickman: A Christmas Celebratio­n.”

With his personable style and dazzling piano artistry, Brickman has built a large fan base in Chattanoog­a who enjoy hearing him discuss the backstorie­s to his songs between performing hit after hit.

The best-selling piano artist of this generation, Brickman and his special guests will dazzle audiences with holiday favorites, No. 1 hits and laughter in his annual Christmas show.

The songwriter has earned 21 No. 1 albums, 32 Top 20 radio singles in

Billboard Magazine, two Grammy nomination­s, a Dove Award and the Canadian Country Music Award.

Brickman is one of pop music’s most fascinatin­g success stories. He jumped from a career as a jingle writer in advertisin­g to reviving the romantic standard of the popular song. His first album release was 1995’s “No Words,” and he’s since sold 8 million albums worldwide.

He’s written three best-selling books, starred in four TV specials, and is in the 20th season of hosting the popular syndicated radio show “The Jim Brickman Show.”

“I write music to be shared — to soothe, to inspire, to celebrate, to love. To me, music is the pure and simple soundtrack to life’s most memorable moments,” he says.
