The return of the King of Country, George Strait, to Gillette Stadium for one night only on Saturday, Aug. 17. The legendary entertainer will be joined in Foxborough by Blake Shelton along with special guests Cody Johnson and Caitlyn Smith. The performance marks Strait’s only show in New England since his “Cowboy Rides Away Tour” stop at Gillette Stadium in 2014 when he announced he would no longer tour and only perform select engagements. Kraft Sports + Entertainment is the official promoter of Strait’s 2019 show at Gillette Stadium. With an unmatched 60 singles hitting the top of the charts – more than any other artist in any genre – during his 30-year career, Strait is the undeniable “King of Country Music.” He has collected 33 Platinum or multi-Platinum-selling albums, more than any county artist and third across all genres behind only The Beatles and Elvis Presley. Strait is the only act in history to have a Top 10 hit every year for over three decades and has sold nearly 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards, including induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.
