Looking rocker chic in a leather jacket and skinny black jeans, Branch opened the show with her chart topper “Everywhere” before going on to perform other hits including “Goodbye to You” and “Leave the Pieces.” Getting everybody into the holiday spirit, she also performed holiday favorites such as “Silent Night” and “River.” The audience was treated to a sneak peek off her upcoming album, due to be released next year, which she described as “poppier” but with a touch of the country twang people are used to from The Wreckers.

Branch joked with the crowd, telling them it was okay to take pictures and get a little rowdy since “it’s Vegas after all!” Some audience members shouted out requests to which Branch graciously obliged, resulting in loud cheers. The crowd went especially wild for her hit “All You Wanted” and the Grammy award-winning Santana collaboration “Game of Love.” After entertaining guests for more than an hour with her songs and personal stories, Branch ended the show to a standing ovation.

When asked about her New Year’s resolutions, she said, “I have the same one every year and that’s to drink more water. But a new one is to unplug – I’m addicted to Twitter and Facebook and I need to scale down a little bit….turn off the TV, pick up a book.”

Branch said the holidays are her favorite time of year because, “Work slows down and I can put on sweatpants, not wear any makeup, cuddle up on the couch with my daughter and watch old Christmas movies. I’ve found new joy in Christmas as a mom and all of the holiday magic comes flooding back.”

She continued, “The season is all about sharing and giving back so I’m here to support a great cause with HELP of Southern Nevada. That’s always the message I keep at the forefront of my mind and I’m instilling that in my daughter as well, reminding her not to get carried away with the presents and to keep the spirit of giving alive.”

On the Winter in Venice celebrations, Branch exclaimed, “It’s phenomenal what The Venetian has done to get everybody in the mood. I love The Venetian because you never have to leave – it’s a one-stop holiday destination. This is my last show of the year and this has been a perfect way to wrap up 2011.”
