– George Strait will stage a two-night-only event in his home state, with back-to-back concerts at Fort Worth's Dickies Arena on Nov. 17-18.
Caitlyn Smith will open both shows.
The two-night stand is a reprise of Strait's two nights at Dickies Arena in 2022, which both sold out within hours of going on sale to the public. Tickets to the 2023 shows go on sale to the general public Friday at 10 a.m. central time via Ticketmaster.com.
The news follows the recent announcement that Strait will team up with Chris Stapleton to perform one-off stadium dates this year in Phoenix, Seattle, Denver, Milwaukee, Nashville (two nights) and Tampa. Little Big Town will open all shows.
Since his record-breaking Cowboy Rides Away Tour in 2014, Strait has performed for limited engagements outside of his 36-and-counting Strait to Vegas shows at T-Mobile Arena, including headlining both weekends of the Austin City Limits Music Festival in 2021 plus his 31st appearance at the Houston Rodeo in 2022.
Smith has written songs for Miley Cyrus, Dolly Parton, Meghan Trainor, John Legend and Garth Brooks. Her 2018 album, "Starfire" and 2020's "Supernova" led to her self-produced project "High" last year. A deluxe album with six new songs, "High & Low," comes out April 14.
