HOUSTON, TX (WCMH) — The King of Country music is back!
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo says country music entertainer and icon George Strait is set perform at the 2019 event. This will be his 30th appearance at the Rodeo, and his first since he retired from touring with a farewell performance at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.
“We are extremely excited to welcome George Strait back to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo,” said Joel Cowley, Rodeo president and CEO. “George has a long history with the Rodeo, first taking the stage back in 1983. He’s been with us through many of our major milestones during the past three decades, has entertained more than 1.5 million RODEOHOUSTON fans and is the only platinum honoree on our Star Trail of Fame.”
Straight had 60 No. 1 singles in his career, the most of any artist of any music genre in history. While he’s remains retired from touring, he has been no stranger to the stage, performing live on national TV last September as part of a benefit concert for Hurricane Harvey victims.
He’ll perform just one night, giving a full-length evening concert on Sunday, March 17 in NRG Stadium. Tickets will go on sale in early January 2019, so mark your calendars now.
