Country music legend George Strait has announced a two-night-only event in his home state, with back-to-back concerts set for Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18, 2023 at Fort Worth’s Dickies Arena. The Country Music Hall of Famer will be joined by special guest Caitlyn Smith for both dates.
The two-night stand is a reprise of Strait’s two nights at Dickies Arena in 2022, which both sold out within hours of going on sale to the public. Tickets to the 2023 shows go on sale to the general public Friday, April 14 at 10 a.m. CT via Ticketmaster.com. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, April 11 at 10 a.m. CT through Thursday, April 13 at 10 p.m. CT.
The news follows the announcement that Strait will team up with Chris Stapleton to perform one-off stadium dates this year in Phoenix, Seattle, Denver, Milwaukee, Nashville (two nights) and Tampa. Joining the King of Country and Stapleton for all dates are special guests Little Big Town.
Since his record-breaking “Cowboy Rides Away Tour” in 2014, Strait has performed for limited engagements outside of his 36-and-counting “Strait to Vegas” shows at T-Mobile Arena, including headlining both weekends of the Austin City Limits Music Festival in 2021 plus his 31st appearance at the Houston Rodeo in 2022. 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 earned his 100th entry on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with his 2019 single, “The Weight of the Badge.” He has sold nearly 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards.
Monument Records powerhouse vocalist Smith has won a Critics’ Choice Award, been nominated for an ACM Award, and written songs for Miley Cyrus, Dolly Parton, Meghan Trainor, John Legend and Garth Brooks. Last year, she released her self-produced project High, and this spring, completed the second half of that album, adding six new songs to make her full record, High & Low, out April 14.
