Everyone ready for what has got to be the best tour ever? In case you haven’t already heard — that best tour ever will start on Jan. 22, 2010, when 17-time CMA Entertainer of the Year George Strait and one of country music’s most talented ladies, Reba McEntire, open their 19-city tour at 1st Mariner in Baltimore, Md.
The tour announcement on George’s web site says – With 57 number one hits, 33 multi-platinum albums and countless sold-out shows year after year, Strait who holds the record for the most CMA wins and a record 17 CMA Entertainer of the Year nominations, is known for giving fans exactly what they want and expect. This year will be no exception. “I can’t wait to get back out there and perform some of my new favorites from Twang along with hits the fans already love,” says Strait. “And with my friend Reba, we will make it a really spectacular night.”
George and Reba were last on the same stage when they did the concert at the opening of the new Callas Cowboys stadium in Arlington, Texas. that show sold out in less than an hour. That’s a pretty good indication that if we want tickets to see these two during their 2010 tour, we better hit the ticket line early.
