I can’t get enough of this duo.
To King George previously announced six stadium shows With Chris Stapleton in 2023 and added a second one in Nashville at Nissan Stadium due to overwhelming demand (and may add more dates in other cities in the coming months) they will be headed to Buckeye Country Superfest for another stadium show next year.
It has just been announced that the duo will travel to Ohio Stadium on May 27th to perform to what I can only imagine a sold out crowd of over 63,000 fans, with Little Big Town and Warren Zeider also joining the cast will be.
They’re also likely to hit packed stadiums in Phoenix, Seattle, Denver, Milwaukee, Nashville and Tampa next year, making it the most extensive run George Strait has completed in his biennial year The cowboy rides away Tour back in 2014 and he narrated billboard the:
“It just felt right. I had the opportunity to work with Chris and Little Big Town and everything just fell into place for the next year.
I don’t do that many shows anymore, so if we can build a stadium where we can play in front of more people, that works for me.”
In a previous interview about their upcoming shows together, George added that he feels most comfortable on stage:
“When I walk through those curtains and see those smiling faces, my feet don’t touch the floor again until I step outside and get on the bus that took me there.
This is from a song I wrote called “I Will Always Remember You”. It’s a true statement.
When we talked about doing those six shows with Chris next year, it was a no-brainer for me. I was all in.”
And of course Chris feels the same way when he plays with the country legend, adding:
“I love doing these shows with George as much as I love doing everything else. There is nothing to compare.
So many of his songs are within the ethos of what country music is. Playing these shows together is a great experience all round.”
They also hinted at possibly making a song or “something together” and I’m still waiting for a collaboration sometime next year.
I mean that’s pretty much one to need at this point, right? What a couple…
