Country music king George Strait may have quit touring last year, but he’s not done singing or performing.
During a press conference Tuesday (Sept. 22), it was announced that Strait is releasing a new album, Cold Beer Conversation, on Friday and that he’ll play a series of shows at the new Las Vegas Arena when it opens in 2016.
The country music legend ended four decades of touring with his record-setting “Cowboy Rides Away” tour but has said he’ll continue to play the occasional gig and has a deal with MCA to produce additional records. Cold Beer Conversationwill be available at iTunes, on Apple Music and at Walmart stores.
Strait will play Las Vegas starting on April 22-23 and again on Sept. 9-10.
