George Strait and Reba McEntire Announce 2010 Tour
George Strait and Reba McEntire are the reigning King and Queen of Country Music, and next year they'll hold court together, giving fans a double dose of some of the biggest hits of the past three decades!
In June of this year, the superstar pair performed together for the first time in years, thrilling a sold-out crowd at the Cowboys Stadium inaugural event in Dallas. The event sold out in less than an hour, and earned a rave review from the Dallas Morning News, hailing it "an extravaganza" that "showcased Strait at the pinnacle of his musical game," while the Fort Worth Star Telegram wrote "Reba McEntire's performance was a breathtaking master's class in effortless brilliance."
But it's the fans who've come to rely on the pair for their shared ability to consistently scale the country chart with practically every single and album they release. With nearly 200 charting singles between the two of them, and record-setting wins and nominations for CMA, ACM and other awards, they've set the gold -- well, make that multi-platinum -- standard for dozens of artists who have followed.
"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 George. "And with my friend Reba, we will make it a really spectacular night."
Expect plenty from Reba's latest album as well. 'Keep on Loving You' debuted at No, 1 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart. While it was her first multi-genre chart-topper, Reba has scored 11 No. 1 country albums in her career -- the record for a female artist.
The George Strait/Reba McEntire tour kicks off Jan, 22, 2010 in Baltimore, Md., and is currently scheduled to run through April.
