BRANSON, Mo. — Singer Tony Orlando says this year's Christmas shows will be his last holiday season in Branson.

Orlando has been performing in the southwest Missouri entertainment resort for 20 years.

The Welk Resort Theatre says in a release that the 2013 "Tony Orlando's Great American Christmas" will be Orlando's last Christmas season as a Branson performer. The seasonal show will run from Nov. 5 to Nov. 30.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that Orlando, best known for his 1973 hit "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree," says it's time to take his Christmas show "out to America."

Orlando will also perform his annual veterans tribute show on Nov. 11.
