George Strait is preparing to hit the road in 2023 on his most extensive stadium tour in nine years - and he's bringing some well-known friends along with him for the ride.
The "King of Country" and his Ace in the Hole Band are slated to play six stadium dates, starting with a May 6 show at Glendale, AZ's State Farm Stadium. A final performance at Tampa, FL's Raymond James Stadium will wrap things up on August 5.
"It just felt right," Strait shared in a statement released by Billboard. "I had the opportunity with Chris and Little Big Town and everything just kind of fell in place for next year. I don't do that many shows anymore, so if we can do a stadium where we can play for more people, that works for me."

Throughout the 1980s, Strait was a prominent and pioneering figure in the neotraditional country movement. He was known for his simple cowboy image and roots-oriented sound during a time when the Nashville music industry was saturated by country-pop crossover acts. Strait maintained a presence at the top of the country charts throughout the 1980s and beyond. He is known as the "King of Country," and is considered one of the most influential and popular recording artists of all time.
