The King of Country George Strait will play two final shows in 2018 on December 7-8 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with special guests Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen.

With an unmatched 60 singles hitting the top of the charts – more than any other artist in any genre – during the span of 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 country artist and third across all genres behind only the Beatles and Elvis Presley. Strait has sold nearly 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards including induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.



The Wrangler NFR is the richest and most prestigious rodeo in the world and an event like no other, an extravaganza for fans to enjoy the roping and riding activity of today’s cowboys. It is the culmination of the rodeo season where the top 15 contestants in bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing and bull riding compete to take home top honors and their share of a multi-million-dollar purse.

Each year the Wrangler NFR transforms the look and feel of the “Entertainment Capital of the World.” Rodeo fans decked out in jeans, boots and hats fill hotels, casinos, restaurants, shopping malls and showrooms. Hotel marquees will be splashed with the names of the brightest stars in country and western music for 10 straight days.

The Wrangler NFR features an impressive list of entertainers to sing the national anthem & perform on stage in Cowboy Corral prior to and after each rodeo performance. Past performers include Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, The Eli Young Band, Reba McEntire and Lady Antebellum.
