George Strait Lee Ann Womack Merle Haggard
George Strait’s Cowboy Rides Away Tour comprises of two legs and has been announced as the last of Strait’s tours. The first leg, which has already been completed in 2013, included twenty-one concerts, featuring Martina McBride as the opening act. The second leg includes twenty shows, all of which feature different guest artists for each date. These guest singers include the likes of Vince Gill, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Sheryl Crow, Chris Young and Miranda Lambert, among many more.
The North American tour has been quite a success, selling tickets to capacity audience within minutes of availability. Strait’s exceptional talent for performing live and entertaining the crowds brought him a CMA Award for Entertainer of the Year in November 2013. His shows feature quite a setlist, including his career-spanning hits alongside his most recent songs. After the completion of his current tour, the artist will continue to make new music and perform on select dates across the country. While busy planning his extensive city-trek, the King of Country released new studio offering Love is Everything, in May 2013. Its lead single Give It All That We Got tonight was issued in October 2012 and continues to soar among Billboard’s top ten singles. Only recently, Strait renewed his recording contract with MCA Records while celebrating in Nashville at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
Country pop singer Lee Ann Womack will be joining Strait on the this concert. Womack is best recognized for her 2000 single titled I Hope You Dance, a huge crossover hit that peaked at number one on the Billboard’s Country Charts. It also entered the top fifteen on the Billboard Hot 100, marking her signature track. Womack gained prominence in 1997 as a contemporary country singer whose music was similar to that of Tammy Wynette and Dolly Parton. The only exception to this similarity was her style of mixing old fashioned elements with contemporary ones. Her album release of 2000, I Hope You Dance, also became an enormous hit because it brought a completely different sound incorporating pop music characteristics. However, it was not until the release of the 2005 album, There’s More Where It Came From that Womack came back to making traditional country songs. She has announced the release of an upcoming album this year and is all excited about playing more shows. Imagine the variety of country music the trio of George Strait, Lee Ann Womack & Merle Haggard will bring to a shared stage.
Western and country singer-songwriter and instrumentalist, Merle Haggard is all set to play in Denver. The artist has been performing regularly following his comeback in 2000 with the release of critically acclaimed album, If Only I Could Fly. He has since made more albums, issuing his most recent in 2011 called Working in Tennessee, which reached the twenty-fifth spot on the Billboard’s Indie charts. To date, Haggard has seventy-six albums and ninety-six singles among which thirty-eight were chart-toppers.
