George Strait Tickets – George Strait Among Cma Awards Performers
The 44th annual Country Music Association Awards will be held at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and broadcast live on ABC on Nov. 10, and The Boot reports that George Strait will be performing at the awards show. It is fitting that Strait will take the stage at the upcoming CMA Awards, as the country legend has won more CMA honors than any other country artist in history, with a grand total of 22!
Strait joins previously announced performers Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum and the Zac Brown Band with Alan Jackson and recently announced performers Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, Rascal Flatts, Sugarland. The night’s hosts, Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, who will be co-hosting the awards show for the third year in a row, will also perform.
George Strait will have a chance to add a few more CMA Awards to his trophy case at the November awards show, as he is nominated for Male Vocalist and Album of the Year for Twang, his 38th album. Strait will compete against Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton and Keith Urban in the Male Vocalist of the Year category, while his album Twang will face off against Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now, Carrie Underwood’s Play On, Miranda Lambert’s Revolution and Dierks Bentley’s Up on the Ridge in the coveted Album of the Year category.
Country music fans don’t have to wait until the CMAs to see Strait perform, as the King of Country kicked off his tour with fellow country greats Reba McEntire and Lee Ann Womack on Sept. 9. The star-studded trio will be stopping in cities like Lexington, Ky.; Nashville, Tenn.; Columbia, S.C.; Birmingham, Ala.; Bossier City, La.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Philadelphia, Pa.; Buffalo, N.Y.; Minneapolis, Minn.; Fargo, N.D. and more through late October. Fans can get George Strait tickets to see Strait perform songs off Twang.
Performing at Bridgestone Arena in the country musical capital of Nashville, Tenn. at the CMAs won’t be foreign to George Strait, as he and his touring mates performed at the venue on their current tour on Sept. 11. “It’s been too long since I’ve done a concert here,” Strait said to the audience at Bridgestone Arena, reports Country Weekly Magazine. Strait began his set with his 1987 hit “Ocean Front Property” and kept the hits coming with “Wrapped Around,” “Run,” “Check Yes or No,” “The Chair,” “How ‘Bout Them Cowgirls,” “The Fireman,” “Seashores of Old Mexico,” “Heartland” and more before closing the night with “The Cowboy Rides Away.” A fitting end, wouldn’t you say?
Strait began churning out country hits during the 1980s, when his debut single “Unwound” first gained him recognition in the country music community and landed among the Top Ten on the Billboard charts. Strait’s success continued into the 1900s and he scored one of the biggest hits of his career with “Go On” off his eponymous 2000 album. George Strait might be 58 years old, but he is here to stay!
