By Music News Group

ABC/Image Group LA Since he retired from touring in 2014, George Strait has made T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas his unofficial home to play live. That’s a relationship that will continue into 2018.

King George has schedule two shows for February 2 and 3, with tickets going on sale Friday, October 27.

“We said from the beginning that we would listen to the fans and follow what they want,” George explains. “Fan support is just as strong now as it was when we started, and we are responding to that interest by adding shows in 2018.”

Fellow Texans Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen will open the concerts at T-Mobile Arena.

The Country-Music-Hall-of-Famer has also scheduled three shows next year that aren’t in Vegas, but are relatively close to his home in the Lone Star State. He’ll play BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 1 and 2, before heading to Frank Erwin Center in Austin on June 3.

By Andrea Dresdale

ABC RadioKane Brown, Garth Brooks and Old Dominion‘s Matthew Ramsey all made appearances Tuesday night at the T.J. Martell Foundation for Cancer Research 42nd New York Honors Gala, which honored outstanding leaders in the music business.

Garth didn’t perform; he was on hand to present Steve Boom, Amazon’s VP of Music, with the Music Innovation Award. Garth was introduced by chart-topping hip-hop deejay, producer and social media star DJ Khaled.

Matthew, there without the rest of Old Dominion, was introduced by super-producer Shane McAnally, and performed the group’s smash hit “No Such Thing as a Broken Heart.” Kane also performed, as did pop/rock star Elle King, who won a CMA last year for her duet with Dierks Bentley, “Different for Girls.”

“I always say that what I do for a living is something that I would do anyway,” Matthew told ABC Radio on the red carpet before his performance. “And then we really get to see that music actually makes a difference. And so if I can come in here and lend a little bit of talent to that, to help, then I’m happy to do it.”

As for Kane, he’s never met a charitable cause he didn’t like.

“I just love supporting any cause,” the chart-stopping star told ABC Radio. “I know it sounds weird but any way I can help people out, I just love to do it!”
