McEntire, Brooks & Dunn add shows, start Vegas gig earlier

Tuesday, January 13, 2015 – Reba McEntire and Brooks and Dunn will no longer be starting their planned Las Vegas residence on June 24.

That's because sales went so well - the first three shows sold out - that they added 3 shows on June, 17, 19 and 20.

Tickets for the new shows are on sale now. Other shows are July 1, 3 and 5 and Aug. 2, 4, 6, 9, 11 and 12.

McEntire and Dunn recently signed with the Nash Icon label, a joint effort of Cumulus Media and Big Machine Label Group. McEntire released the single "Going Out Like That" on Jan. 7.
