George Strait: Releasing and Setting Records

In a career already brimming with milestones, country music legend George Strait has just added another record to his impressive tally. On a historic Saturday night, George Strait and the Ace in The Hole Band played to a staggering crowd of 110,905 fans at Texas A&M's Kyle Field in College Station, setting the record for the largest ticketed concert in U.S. history. He holds more than 20 attendance records at various music venues across the United States, including largest indoor concert in North America for his 2014 The Cowboy Rides Away Tour performance at the AT&T Stadium, drawing 104,793.

 

George Strait will release his 31st album on September 6, 2024 titled Cowboys and Dreamers. The album includes songwriting credits from George Strait, Bubba Strait, Dean Dillon, Jessi Jo Dillon, Keith Gattis, Guy Clark, Marty Brown, Bobby Braddock, Jim Lauderdale and Waylon Jennings among other notable writers.  

 

“I’m dedicating this record to my longtime manager and friend Erv Woolsey and my longtime fiddle player and friend Gene Elders (a player on four of these tracks), who we lost on the same day, March 20, 2024, as well as my longtime friend and road manager Tom Foote, who we lost on April 29, 2024,” shares Strait. “I will never forget all of the good times we had together. May they rest in peace with our Lord Jesus Christ.”
