George Strait will return to the road in early 2008 for a series of arena concerts. The 19-city tour begins Jan. 10 in Austin, Texas, with dates currently scheduled through March 7 in Lubbock, Texas. Additional concerts are expected to be announced soon. Little Big Town will open the shows. Little Big Town's Kimberly Roads says, "We have been so fortunate over the past couple of years to tour with some amazing artists. But to be invited to share the stage with an entertainer like George Strait -- who never fails to give fans what they want year after year, show after show and hit after hit -- is truly an honor. He has the career we all strive for."
