“What’s going on everybody?” country legend George Strait said to a record crowd of 110,905 ticket-buying fans gathered tonight (June 15) at Kyle Field at Texas A&M in College Station. “We got some Aggie’s out there? Oh yeah! I’m ashamed to say this, but this is my first time to ever be in Kyle Field… damn! Just invite me back, I’ll come!” 

Minutes ago, the Texas native set an all-time attendance record  for a ticketed concert in the United States, previously held by The Grateful Dead who had 107,019 fans in attendance at their 1977 show at Raceway Park in New Jersey. Strait’s show also and a new record for Texas A&M Kyle Field for a single event (previously recorded on October 11, 2014, at 110,633, for a Texas A&M game against Ole Miss)with 110,905 fans in attendance for George Strait: The King at Kyle Field with special guests, fellow Lone Star natives and MCA labelmates, Parker McCollum and Catie Offerman.

Prior to the show, Strait debuted two new songs “MIA in MIA” and “The Little Things,” both off his forthcoming album, Cowboys And Dreamers, his 31st album for MCA Nashville that will be released on Sept. 6.
