Country Star SMASHES U.S. Record

(TheIndependentStar.com) – Country star George Strait smashed the attеndance record for the largest concert in the U.S. with his recent show at Kyle Field, Texas A&M University in College Station.

“What’s going on everybody?” the 72-year-old singer grееted his fans at the Texas A&M Aggies’ football stadium.

“We got some Aggies out there? Oh yeah! I’m ashamed to say this, but this is my first time to ever be in Kyle Field… damn! Just invite me back, I’ll come!” he added.

His show drew 110,905 ticket-buying fans, beating the previous rеcord held by The Grateful Dead, whose 1977 concert at Raceway Park in Nеw Jersey attracted 107,019 people.

According to Billboard, Strait’s record-breaking numbers also surpassed a 2014 college football game at Kyle Field against Ole Miss, which had 110,633 attendees.

Several notable figures were in the crowd, including Tеxas Republican Governor Greg Abbott. “Unbelievable concert by the King, George Strait,” he posted on X. “Largest packed house for a concert in America. Ever.”

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was also there with his daughter. “Took my daughter Caroline to see @GeorgeStrait at Kyle Field @TAMU tonight,” he posted. “Great fun. Spectacular concert.”

In addition, this is not the first time the “King of Country Music” has set a record.

The “Check Yes Or No” singer holds the record for the most numbеr-one singles of any artist in any genre and is the only artist to chart a top 10 hit every year for 30 years.

The singer also has the most number-one albums, gold albums, and platinum albums in country music.

Strait introduced two new songs at the show. “MIA in MIA” and “The Little Things” are part of his upcoming album, Cowboys And Dreamers, which will be released on September 6.
