Strait, a 17-time Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year nominee, will kick off his arena tour Jan. 22 in Baltimore, and this time, he’s bringing along a very special lady – Chockie native Reba.
The superstars performed together for the first time in many years for a sold-out crowd at the inaugural event last summer at the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Selling out in less than an hour, fans and critics proclaimed the show one hot ticket. The concert was hailed by the Dallas Morning News as “an extravaganza” that “showcased Strait at the pinnacle of his musical game” and Ft. Worth Star Telegram wrote “Reba McEntire’s performance was a breathtaking master’s class in effortless brilliance.”
With 57 No. 1 hits, 33 multi-platinum albums and countless sold-out shows year after year, Strait, who holds the record for the most CMA wins, is known for giving fans exactly what they want and expect. This year will be no exception, he promises.
“I can’t wait to get back out there and perform some of my new favorites from ‘Twang’ along with hits the fans already love,” says Strait in a news release. “And with my friend Reba, we will make it a really spectacular night.”
Strait’s recent release, “Twang,” debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and the Top Country Albums charts. This is the fourth time in Strait’s career that a new release has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and the 13th time debuting at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart. It has become a critically acclaimed album and received rave reviews in USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, People, Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Houston Chronicle, The Dallas Morning News, The Boston Globe, Billboard and many more.
Strait co-wrote three songs on “Twang,” including the debut single, “Living for the Night.” The current single and title track of the album sits at No. 22 on Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart.
At the 2008 CMA Awards, the King of Country became the artist with the most CMA Awards in history with Album of the Year for “Troubadour” and Single of the Year for “I Saw God Today.”
In addition, his platinum-selling “Troubadour” was named Best Country Album at the 51st Grammy Awards. Last April, Strait was the fifth artist ever to receive the Academy of Country Music’s Artist of the Decade honor. Strait has won 19 Academy of Country Music Awards including Entertainer of the Year.
With a career spanning more than 25 years, Strait has 57 No. 1 singles to his credit, which is the most of any artist in history, including Elvis Presley. He has sold more than 67 million records, garnering him 33 different platinum or multi-platinum albums – the most RIAA platinum certifications in country music and the third in all genres, behind The Beatles and Elvis Presley.
One of the most successful female recording artists in history, McEntire has sold more than 55 million albums worldwide, earned 33 No. 1 singles and was recently recognized as the biggest female hit-maker in country music history by Billboard, Mediabase and Country Aircheck. She is the winner of 15 American Music Awards, 12 Academy of Country Music Awards, nine People’s Choice Awards, seven Country Music Association Awards and two Grammy Awards.
Reba’s new album, “Keep On Loving You,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart – her first solo studio album to do so. With 11 No. 1 albums, she holds the record as the female artist with the most No. 1 albums in the history of the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. The superstar also recently scored her second consecutive Top 10 single of 2009, as the fastest-rising single of her career, “Strange,” ascended the Top 10 on the USA Today/ Country Aircheck Chart powered by Mediabase).
