Strait returns to stadiums in '23

Monday, October 24, 2022 – 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.

Tour dates are:
May 6 Glendale, Ariz. || State Farm Stadium
June 3 Milwaukee, Wisc. || American Family Field
June 17 Seattle, Wash. || Lumen Field
June 24 Denver, Colo. || Empower Field at Mile High Stadium
July 29 Nashville, Tenn. || Nissan Stadium
Aug. 5 Tampa, Fla. || Raymond James Stadium

Strait will also perform for a two-night stand at Fort Worth's Dickies Arena on Friday, Nov. 18 and Saturday, Nov. 19. He returns to Las Vegas for his Strait to Vegas series once again at his T-Mobile Arena home away from home for the 35th and 36th times on Friday, Dec. 2 and Saturday, Dec. 3.

CD review - Higher There was a bit of a controversy at the recent CMAs when Chris Stapleton beat out Morgan Wallen for best male vocalist, especially after Wallen had such a huge year, commercially speaking. Yes, one can make the case that Wallen is the most popular male singer in country music these days. However, when it comes to pure singing, Stapleton is arguably the genre's most naturally talented singer. He doesn't really need any more proof of that, of course, but his "Higher" album ...
CD review - Startin' Over Chris Stapleton's "Starting Over" release is one of those rare beauties of an album, where your favorite track may change from day to day. All of 'em are just that great. It is, simply put, Stapleton's best full-length to date. You may love the title track, which puts flesh and bone onto the 'better luck next time' wish. Then again, the spiritual truth contained within the Creedence Clearwater Revival-esque "Devil Always Made Me Think Twice" might also ...
CD review - Honky Tonk Time Machine At this stage of his nearly four-decades-long career, George Strait sure knows his sweet spot. Take a look at the cover of his 30th studio album, and it's understood that it's the honky tonks that are part and parcel of the tall Texan. Not to mention the title. And that means, Strait is going to be singing about drinking, loving and faith in styles ranging from honky tonk to straight ahead country to Tex-Mex stylings to ballads. You're also going to hear fiddle and pedal steel ...
