George Strait Just Made Music History

Hello everyone! Gather ’round for some electrifying news straight from the heart of Texas! The “King of Country Music,” George Strait, has added another jewel to his crown. He’s now the undisputed “King of Concerts,” after shattering the record for the largest U.S. ticketed show at Kyle Field, Texas A&M.

This past Saturday, the legendary “Amarillo By Morning” singer performed to an astonishing crowd of 110,905 fans in College Station, Texas. This record-breaking event surpassed the previous attendance record set nearly five decades ago by the Grateful Dead. Back in 1977, the Dead drew 107,019 fans to New Jersey’s Raceway Park, a number Strait topped by almost 4,000 tickets!

Strait’s excitement was palpable as he greeted the audience, “We got some Aggies out there? Oh yeah! I’m ashamed to say this, but this is my first time to ever be in Kyle Field… damn. Just invite me back, I’ll come!” His connection with the crowd was evident and heartfelt, making the night even more unforgettable.

The anticipation was building long before the first note was played. Strait had taken to X (formerly Twitter) to urge fans to arrive early and stay hydrated, hinting they were in for a special treat.

And what a treat it was! Even Texas Governor Greg Abbott was in the crowd, cheering on as Strait debuted two new songs, “MIA in MIA” and “The Little Things,” from his upcoming album “Cowboys and Dreamers.”

Governor Abbott took to social media after the concert, exclaiming, “Unbelievable concert by the King, George Strait. Largest packed house for a concert in America. Ever.” Senator Ted Cruz also shared his excitement, mentioning he took his daughter to see the show, calling it “great fun” and “spectacular.”

But George Strait wasn’t alone on stage. Special guests Parker McCollum and Catie Offerman joined him, adding to the night’s star-studded lineup. It was a concert for the ages, filled with timeless hits and fresh new tunes.

George Strait’s career is a testament to his enduring appeal and unmatched talent. With more No. 1 singles than any other artist in any genre, he has charted a top 10 hit every year for 30 consecutive years. He holds the record for the most No. 1 albums in country music history, and among his 60 No. 1 hits, 20 of those have topped the charts.

Beyond records, Strait has sold over 120 million records worldwide, cementing his status as one of the bestselling music artists of all time. His influence and legacy in country music are unparalleled, and this latest concert record only adds to his legendary status.
