Having made the announcement he would be the first artist to play the new Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas, country music superstar George Strait has done his fans a solid and scheduled an added date at the venue. Posting to his social media earlier this month, Strait said that although tickets have sold quickly for the November 22 concert date, he’ll be performing there on November 23 as well, with ticket sales commencing on Friday, February 8, 2019.

Ticketmaster will once again handle sales for the second concert date at the Dickies Arena, a link for which is available here. The sales will commence at 10 a.m. Central (the local time zone). Fans who missed out on the opportunity to purchase for the first show on November 22 will have to be quick on the draw at their computers in order to get themselves a seat, but a chance to see Strait sing live is worth the struggle (…remember the days when you used to have to dial in and wait on hold in hopes that a seat was available?!).

Shared on the George Strait YouTube channel, the song “Troubadour” came out in 2008, as the second single from the album of the same name. It launched as his 86th chart single and quickly became his 79th top-ten single, according to Billboard. A nice little tidbit that his fans might not be aware of is that Vince Gill performs the background vocals on the single! Known for his strong support of his counterparts in the industry, Strait invited Gill to perform with him on his final tour as part of the select group of stars he welcomed to the stage for duets. Written by Leslie Satcher and Monty Holmes, “Troubadour” is a ballad in which the singer reflects on his life with pride at what he’s accomplished and continues to do. The official music video (seen above) was released two months after the song. The footage alternates between images of Strait’s career over the years and film of him singing. It was the first music video the star had released since “The Seashores of Old Mexico,” which was filmed in 2006. Prior set lists for concerts the King of Country Music has performed throughout the U.S. have previously included “Troubadour” as an integral component. His string of hits is so long, it’s hard to be sure what he’ll have time to play, but you can bet the second concert date at the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth this November will be worth it, no matter what the set includes!
