The King of Country’s one-night-only concert event planned for July 30th at Kansas City’s GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium keeps getting bigger as Messina Touring announces the addition of ACM New Male Vocalist and fellow Texan Parker McCollum. The chart-topping artist joins superstars Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town in gracing the stadium’s stage for the first time, while George Strait himself makes his first return to the venue since 2001. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster.com with limited quantities remaining.
McCollum’s major label debut Hollywood Gold was met with widespread critical acclaim and became the top-selling debut country EP of 2020. The singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist earned his first-ever No. 1 hit with his Platinum-selling debut single, “Pretty Heart,” and his follow up single, “To Be Loved By You,” off debut album Gold Chain Cowboy, also took the No.1 spot for two consecutive chart-topping singles. McCollum has been named an ‘Artist to Watch’ by Rolling Stone, Billboard, SiriusXM, CMT, RIAA and more with American Songwriter noting, “The Texas native teeters on the edge of next-level superstardom.” A dedicated road warrior, McCollum already sells out venues across the country including record-breaking crowds in Austin and Lubbock, plus Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and three nights at the iconic Billy Bob’s Texas. He also made his Grand Ole Opry debut last year and recently made his RODEOHOUSTON debut performing for a sold-out crowd and turning his childhood dream into a reality.
With an unmatched 60 singles hitting the top of the charts—more than any other artist in any genre—during the span of his 30+ year career, Strait has collected 33 Platinum or multi-Platinum-selling albums, more than any other Country artist and ranking third across all genres behind The Beatles and Elvis Presley. The Texas troubadour is the only artist or act in history to have a Top 10 hit every year for over three decades and recently earned his 100th entry on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with his latest single, “The Weight of the Badge.” He has sold nearly 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards, including induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.
The July 30th show will mark the 54th concert or music festival in GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium history and will be the 15th concert performance that the stadium has hosted since 2011. The 2022 show will be Strait’s fourth performance (1998-99, 2001) at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. In addition to performing in Kansas City, Strait will also headline Lincoln, Nebraska’s Pinnacle Bank Arena tomorrow, April 23, and will perform back-to-back nights with Willie Nelson and Randy Rogers for the grand opening of the Moody Center in Austin on April 29 and 30.
