Perhaps the best concert of the year just went down in Minneapolis, Minnesota. George Strait and Chris Stapleton joined forces at US Bank Stadium.
If you were one of the over 50,000 people that were in attendance, just know that there are millions of country music fans very jealous of you. To get a chance to see Strait and Stapleton on the same night, on the same stage, at the same time? Seriously, there are few duos in country music that could beat this one.
Of course, George Strait posted some pictures on his Instagram. That is a night that those fans will remember forever. Strait in a black cowboy hat and a denim ensemble. Stapleton in all black except his signature tan cowboy hat. Check out the photo below and tell me you aren’t a bit envious of those that got to see this show in person.
“Setting records with @chrisstapleton! Were you one of the 51,030 attendees at @usbankstadium on Saturday?” Strait asked in the post. “George brought the second-largest crowd at a U.S. Bank Stadium concert!”
With so many in attendance, this show must have been rocking. Stapleton just came off a historic night at the CMA Awards. He was nominated for 5 awards and won five. He took the Song, Single, Album, and Vocalist of the Year Awards. Stapleton missed out on Entertainer of the Year to Luke Combs.
As for George Strait, of course, he needs no introduction. His list of accomplishments in the genre is too vast to put here. All the No.1 songs, all the awards, and all of the great concerts over the years. This pair makes up two of the biggest stars in country music.
George Strait Playing with All the Big Names in Country
The show with Stapleton is the latest epic pairing that Strait has had in recent days. The Chief, Eric Church joined the King of Country George Strait on stage at ATLive. Hosted in Atlanta in the beautiful Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the singers put on a great show.
Strait just keeps getting these great shows together and we love it. He should do a tour with one big guest star at each stop. There are so many great combinations you could put together. Of course, Strait by himself would be worth the price of a ticket, but adding acts like Church and Stapleton…that’s just too good.
One thing is certain, George Strait is going to bring a great show wherever he goes. If he teams up with other superstars like Church and more, that’s just something fans have to see. If there’s a Strait concert coming to a town near you, get out there and go if you can. Surely, you won’t regret it.
