In case you missed it...
George Strait has definitely slowed down. The legend has cut way back from the 200+ shows a year once upon a time to a few select concerts - so any opportunity to see King George on stage is a must-have ticket. No surprise then that Friday's announcement of two fall shows from the country legend had country music fans buzzing. After teasing a big reveal for several days, Dickie's Arena in Ft. Worth, Texas tweeted out the big news: the country icon is playing two shows at the venue November 17-18! Opening both shows will be singer/songwriter Caitlyn Smith. The fall shows are not the only dates on the King's calendar this year: George is scheduled for a few stadium performances over the summer. He'll make stops at six stadiums with Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town opening those shows.

The Grand Ole Opry is practically sacred to country artists, so to say that Carly Pearce's 100th show at the venue is something special is an understatement. Carly's first appearance was on May 15, 2015, and she was officially invited to join the ranks of Opry members by Dolly Parton on June 17, 2021. To commemorate her landmark 100th Opry show, Carly has curated the list of performers tomorrow night herself. She first announced the show on March 21st. "So, the Grand Ole Opry is very special to me, and like I said, this is my 99th time, so clearly I'm obsessed with this place. I'm glad that they now own me [as] family," she shared at the time. "I am so excited on April 11, I am going to be celebrating my 100th performance here at the Grand Ole Opry, and I hope that some of you will join us. There's gonna be surprise guests - I've kind of curated the lineup that night and it's very exciting," she said at the time. We now know who some of those special guests are: Ashley McBryde, Ricky Skaggs and the Isaacs are now confirmed, with more additions to the lineup possible before they hit the stage tomorrow night.
