AUSTIN - Country music fans hang on to your hats, George Strait is coming to town. But don’t saddle up just yet because you’ve still got about a year left until the show.
The Frank Erwin Center made the announcement on social media Monday afternoon with a video recording from the King of Country himself.
Sporting his trademark cowboy hat, Strait said he’ll be coming to Austin next summer to help the Frank Erwin Center celebrate its 40th anniversary, signing out with a “Hook ‘Em Horns.”
George Strait himself has also performed at the stadium a number of times, including a notable two-night run on September 10 and 11 in 1987.
While no date for the anniversary show has been set just yet, the Frank Erwin Center said more information will be coming soon.
George Strait recently made headlines when he announced his Hand in Hand Texas concert, a benefit event in San Antonio to raise funds for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. It will include guests Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton, Robert Earl Keen and Lyle Lovett.
Scheduled to take place on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Majestic Theater, the event sold out in minutes.
