It’s a return to the stage for STRAIT, whose final-ever tour stop took place last year at AT&T STADIUM in DALLAS, where he played to 104,793 fans.

MERCURY NASHVILLE artist KACEY MUSGRAVES will open the LAS VEGAS shows.
UMG NASHVILLE President CINDY MABE also announced a new album, “Cold Beer Conversation,” will be released FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, with the title track shipped to radio TOMORROW (9/23) as the lead single, The album will be available exclusively at WALMART and APPLE MUSIC.
