– The King of country, George Strait, will return to the road for six stadium shows next year.
Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town will join Strait for one-off stadium dates in Phoenix, Seattle, Denver, Milwaukee, Nashville and Tampa.
"When I walk through those curtains and see those smiling faces, my feet don't touch the ground again 'til I walk back out and get on that bus that got me there. That's from a song I wrote called 'I'll Always Remember You.' It's a true statement," Strait shared exclusively with Billboard of the announcement. "When we talked about doing these six shows next year with Chris, it was a no brainer for me. I was all in."
"I love doing these shows with George about as much as I like doing anything. There's nothing to compare it to," said Stapleton. "So many of his songs are in the ethos of what country music is. Playing these shows together is a great experience all the way around."
Tickets to all shows go on sale next Friday, Nov. 4 at 10 a.m. local time at GeorgeStrait.com. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 10 a.m. local time through Thursday, Nov. 3 at 10 p.m. local time.
