It was a full house at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium Saturday evening! The “King” of country let everyone know that the age of 70, he still sits on the throne. Over his many years Strait has won every music award imaginable and is tops for the most #1 country hits of all time with over 60! Strait also holds the record for most #1 songs on all charts by an artist in any genre of music!
Parker McCollum opened the show with Little Big Town taking the stage next! LBT was at the Ozarks Amphitheater near Lake of the Ozarks the night before with a sold out show of their own. They rolled out all their big hits including a couple new tracks. If you’ve not heard “All Summer”, you need to check it out.
The amazing Chris Stapleton took the stage next performing many of his biggest hits. One of the most accomplished singer-songwriters in recent history, Stapleton has won eight Grammy Awards, 10 ACM’s, and 14 CMA awards!
The weather was a “star” as well. After weeks of near-record heat in Kansas City, Saturday’s high was in the upper 70’s and the clouds stuck around until after the sun went down making for a perfect night!
Of course the night belonged to “The King”! Every song was one everyone knew and the whole stadium sang along to them all! Strait and his band sounded nearly perfect. With so many songs in his library it was fun to trying to guess what he’d play next! It was a good time and a great show! Long live “The King”!
