If you don’t know what to get that certain someone for Valentine’s Day, the Nashville Symphony can help — next year, that is.

This Sunday, everyone’s on their own, but plans for 2011 Valentine’s Day weekend can be made by season-ticket holders of the symphony now, as tickets for R&B legend Gladys Knight shows on Feb. 11-12, 2011 — additions to the 2010/11 season — went on sale Monday.

The concerts will feature some of the biggest hits from Knight’s decades-spanning career, which includes her success with the Pips in addition to a successful solo career. Single tickets for the general public will go on sale July 17.

Knight’s more memorable tunes include “Midnight Train to Georgia,” “If I Were Your Woman,” “Neither One Of Us (Wants to Be the First to Say Goodbye)” and “Love Overboard.”
