TULSA – Musical icon George Strait announced that former Tulsan Ronnie Dunn will be the special guest for his April 19 concert at the BOK Center as part of the second leg of his final two-year tour, “The Cowboy Rides Away Tour.”
Last month, in a press conference streamed live on georgestrait.com from AT&T Stadium, home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, Strait revealed the final 26 markets he will visit during the winter and spring legs of his 2014 tour.
Additionally, Strait revealed he will have special guests on each tour weekend that will be matched with the corresponding tour date and market via a “tweet to unlock” campaign. Other special guests will include Tishomingo resident Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Merle Haggard, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Lee Ann Womack, Chris Young and more.
“The first leg of the tour earlier this year was very fun, but also very emotional,” said Strait in the news release. “Every city and venue holds such great memories. I’m really looking forward to seeing our fans out on the road in 2014.”
Strait, who recently renewed his record deal with MCA Records during a celebration at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, will continue to record new music and play select dates around the country following the completion of the tour. “The Cowboy Rides Away Tour” will offer fans a final opportunity to see Strait’s live show filled with hits from throughout his remarkable career, including many of his 60 No. 1 hits (more than any other artist in any genre). Additionally, Strait will receive Billboard’s Legend of Live Award in November in a ceremony in New York City. This is the magazine’s most coveted touring award, and he is the first country music artist to achieve this honor.
