George Strait joins stellar Fire Relief: The Concert for Central Texas lineup

The rumors are true: King George is coming to Austin.

George Strait will join an already star-studded lineup of musicians headed to the Frank Erwin Center on Oct. 17 for Fire Relief: The Concert for Central Texas, promoters of the concert announced Tuesday. In reporting on the benefit concert last week, CultureMap surmised that Texas native Strait would be making a much-anticipated appearance.

Strait recently released a new album, Here For A Good Time, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country charts, not unheard of for the country star who has over 20 No. 1 hits under his belt.

The Austin appearance is likely to be the last time this year that fans can see Strait perform live. He plans to kick off a tour in January 2012 with Martina McBride.

Strait will join such iconic Texas singers as Willie Nelson, Asleep at the Wheel, The Dixie Chicks, Lyle Lovett and The Texas Tornados at the benefit concert.

Tickets for Fire Relief: The Concert for Central Texas are on sale now, with the most affordable tickets still available. Prices range from $25 mezzanine seats to $250 VIP tickets. With such a strong lineup of Texas favorites, and the new addition of Strait, tickets are expected to sell out quickly.

All proceeds from the concert will be dispersed to central Texas community organizations and charities through the Central Texas Wildfire Fund.


Tickets for Fire Relief: The Concert for Central Texas are available through the Texas Box Office.
