IN Kansas City raved about “Strait to the Heartland” night one, noting that “the 18,000-plus in attendance got just what they paid for: an evening of hits and favorites performed with enthusiasm and virtuosity. [Strait] also gave them the usual pageantry and rituals befitting one of the most beloved and admired artists in music.”
Just last month, the King of Country Music also revealed plans for an Aug. 22 show at Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium with special guests Stapleton, Little Big Town and more, as well as two more of his legendary “Strait to Vegas” shows planned for T-Mobile Arena on Aug. 28 and 29 with special guest Caitlyn Smith.
With an unmatched 60 singles hitting the top of the charts—more than any other artist in any genre—during the span of his 30+ year career, Strait has collected 33 Platinum or multi-Platinum-selling albums, more than any other Country artist and ranking third across all genres behind The Beatles and Elvis Presley. The Texas troubadour is the only artist or act in history to have a Top 10 hit every year for over three decades and recently earned his 100th entry on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with his latest single, “The Weight of the Badge.” He has sold nearly 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards, including induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.Get ready @NotreDame! @GeorgeStrait, @ChrisStapleton, and @BrothersOsborne are headed #StraitToSouthBend August 15 at Notre Dame Stadium #notredame #countrymusic #georgestraitClick To Tweet
