George Strait Hits the West Next June

Published: 2005-10-25
Country singer George Strait is going out on the road in 2006.

Strait's newest album, Somewhere Down in Texas, which was released in June, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 charts as well as the Billboard country charts.

The tour of North America covers the United States from January to March of 2006. The Texan, who obviously wants to avoid Canada in the cold months, is heading up north in the month of June. But he'll only be stopping in the country-loving western provinces.

Strait has collected ten Country Music Awards since his debut in 1981. He will be on tour with fellow county singer Tracy Lawerence.

Here's where you can catch him in this country:

June 3-4, Edmonton, AB - Rexall Place
June 5-6, Calgary, AB - Saddledome
June 8 - Saskatoon, SK - Credit Union Centre
June 9 - Winnipeg, MB - MTS Centre
