George Strait, The King of Country Music, has announced six one-off stadium dates along with Chris Stapleton in 2023. Strait will play stadium dates in Phoenix, Seattle, Denver, Milwaukee, Nashville, and Tampa. Also joining the country music icon for the shows will be special guests Little Big Town.

George said in a press release, “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. When we talked about doing these six shows next year with Chris, it was a no-brainer for me. I was all in.”

Stapleton added, “I love doing these shows with George about as much as I like doing anything. There’s nothing to compare it to. 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, November 4, at 10 a.m. local time at
