George Strait Set To Break Yet Another Record

Peggy Sirota

When it’s all said and done, King George might own all the records. Well, Garth Brooks may have something to say about overall albums sales as he continues to churn out box sets and sell the same albums to the same people over and over, but that’s another story.

George Strait already owns the record for #1 singles in country history with 60 of them, is the only artist to have a Top 10 hit every single year for three decades, as well as 100 entries on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Strait also has over 60 major entertainment industry awards, along with over 70 million albums sold, accruing 33 Platinum and Multi Platinum albums.

Earlier this year, Strait announced his only concert in Texas in 2024, called The King at Kyle Field. He’ll take the field in College Station at the home of the Texas Aggies football team on June 15th, with Parker McCollum and Catie Offerman opening the show.

Now the concert is set to break George Strait’s all time record attendance, facilitated by the high demand for the show, the size of Kyle Field as one of the largest capacity stadiums in college football, and the fact that the show will be “in the round,” allowing fans to pack the field around “King” George.

Originally announced on March 19th, the concert has already sold over 100,000 tickets, and is on pace to break Strait’s all-time attendance record of 104,793 set in 2014 at the final show of his Cowboy Rides Away tour at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

It’s funny that some still try to convince the world that there’s no more interest in “older” country music. It’s unlikely you will be able to hear The King on the radio these days, or see him up for any major industry awards anymore. But when he announces a show, the people show up in droves, and pay a premium for tickets to see The King in person.
