Strait will headline the event in honor of the grand opening of the new Austin arena Moody Center and will include special guests Willie Nelson & Family and Randy Rogers Band.  

“I’m so glad I’ll get to ‘sing one with Willie’ and I can’t think of a better place to do it than Austin, Texas,” shares Strait. “Willie is an incredible musician and an even better person, so I know this will be a great night together along with our friends from Randy Rogers Band.”

The Grand Opening will be the second time Strait and Nelson have shared the stage throughout their careers. In addition, fans in attendance will have the honor of celebrating Nelson’s birthday the same night as the legendary artist turns 89 on April 29.

“While planning our grand opening celebration, we knew we had an obligation to pay homage to Lone Star State,” says Jeff Nickler, general manager of Moody Center, in a statement. “George, Willie, and Randy are all Texas natives who have built legendary careers while having an unbelievable impact on the country music industry. It doesn’t get any bigger than this.”
