George Strait Has One of Country Music's Sexiest Voices
Strait retired from full-blown touring after wrapping his farewell The Cowboy Rides Away Tour in 2014, but he hasn't been sitting around the house in the years since. He's performed 18 Strait to Vegas shows at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas over the past several years, and he's extended that run into 2019 with two more shows scheduled for Feb. 1-2, with Ashley McBryde as his support act.
Strait and his Ace in the Hole Band will be performing the upcoming shows after the loss of their longtime drummer, Mike Kennedy, who was killed in a car accident in Tennessee in August.
