Tickets for the highly-anticipated concert will go on sale to the public Friday, December 6th at 10 am CST and can be purchased via Strait’s official website.
Additionally, Strait’s latest single “I Got A Car“ is working its way onto country radio. It is the third release from his chart-topping 40th album Love Is Everything and was penned by Tony Douglas and Keith Gattis.
Although this is Strait’s final concert tour, the legendary artist will continue to record new music for longtime label home MCA Records and will perform select dates across the country after the tour has wrapped.
