George Strait entertained 19,222 fans at Las Vegas’ new T-Mobile Arena this past weekend with songs from his catalog of No. 1 songs, including “All My Ex’s Live In Texas,” “Ocean Front Property,” and more.

“I’ve missed you guys and I’m looking forward to being here a few more nights this year,” Strait told the crowd.

Strait also honored the late Merle Haggard with a medley of Haggard hits, including “Mama Tried,” “Fightin’ Side Of Me,” and “My Life’s Been Grand.”

“We’ll never get to hear Merle play live again, but his music will live on forever,” Strait said.

Kacey Musgraves opened the show.

The show is the first of several Strait concerts at the T-Mobile Arena slated for 2016 and 2017, with additional sold-out shows set for Sept. 9-10, Dec. 2-3, and Feb. 17-18, 2017.
