George Strait just held a press conference live and made two huge announcements. The first was that he’s doing headlining concerts at the new Las Vegas Arena in Paradise, Nevada. The concert dates will take place in 2016, on April 22 and April 23 along with September 9 and September 10. The other major announcement is that he’s releasing a new album titled Cold Beer Conversation…this Friday. That’s not a typo either. It’s being released on Friday September 25. It is now exclusively available for pre-order via Apple Music and Walmart. The press conference, aptly titled Strait To Vegas, is ongoing at this moment, where he will be taking questions. For those catching the post at a later time, you can watch it in full too.
This is absolutely huge and surprising news. Strait pulled a Beyoncé on us! And thanks to the great Windmills Music, you can get an idea of what to expect as she has put together a track listing and co-writes for them. You can check all of that out by clicking here. We’ll be sure to have a review on this album as soon as we can. In the meantime get excited Strait fans. I know I am.
Update: Kacey Musgraves will be joining the concerts as a supporting act. More information can be found here.
