American music icon George Strait may have retired from traditional touring, however it hasn’t stopped him from playing to sold-out crowds in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena or revisiting select cities to take music from his new album Honky Tonk Time Machine to the fans for one-off exclusive shows. Strait heads to the heartland in 2020 with performances at INTRUST Bank Arena on Friday, January 24 for Visit Wichita Presents Strait to Oz and in Kansas City for Strait to the Heartland at Sprint Center on Saturday, January 25. Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday, May 17. 

Both prior performances at INTRUST Bank Arena in April 2014 and Sprint Center in January 2014 were part of Strait’s final two-year tour, The Cowboy Rides Away Tour. The sold-out concerts respectively held single event attendance records for nearly five years. 

Showing no signs of slowing on the new music front either, Strait recently released Honky Tonk Time Machine on MCA Nashville March 29, debuting as his record-extending 27th No. 1 Billboard Country album. Comprised of 12 original titles plus Strait’s version of the Johnny Paycheck classic “Old Violin,” Honky Tonk Time Machine marks an incredible 30th career studio album for Strait. 

Strait, who produced the album alongside Chuck Ainlay, wrote eight of the 13 tracks including “Sing One with Willie” featuring Willie Nelson that the pair happily debuted at a recent Nashville show marking the first time the two country icons have ever shared the stage.

Honky Tonk Time Machine’s lead single, “Every Little Honky Tonk Bar,” is currently Top 20-and-climbing with the music video for the single available now
