Also, Strait will be one of the first to perform at the new Las Vegas Arena–he will return to live performances for dates on April 22nd and 23rd, 2016, and September 9th and 10th. Strait will be joined in Vegas by Kacey Musgraves.
In light of the album, there will be no Female Friday. I will have a review of this as soon as I can!
P.S. As a George Strait fan, yes!
