George Strait's last tour stop in Iowa came back in April of 2014. It was called 'The Cowboy Rides Away' tour. Fortunately for country fans, this cowboy is back in the saddle and headed back to the Hawkeye state!

George Strait is coming back to Iowa. The King of Country music, with more number-one songs than an artist can sing during a single show, will return to the state next spring! Few artists in any genre of music have accomplished more. Over 60 number-one songs. The Artist of the Decade for the 2000s. A member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Only Elvis and The Beatles have more gold and platinum albums. His songs are part of the fabric of country music, and we get to see him ride into Iowa for an amazing show on Saturday, May 25th, 2024 at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames!
