George Strait adds Lee Ann Womack to 'Twang' tour
George Strait has added Lee Ann Womack to the roster of performers for his upcoming headlining tour in support of his latest album, "Twang."
The trek, which also features Reba McEntire, kicks off Jan. 26 in Baltimore. Dates are currently set through an April 10 performance in Des Moines, IA, with stops in 18 cities along the way. The itinerary is detailed below.
"We're talking classic country from the source," said Womack in a press statement. "I can't imagine a better tour to be on than George Strait and Reba McEntire--and now I'm not imagining!"
"I'm trying to figure out what to wear," she added, "cause you can't out-starch George and you sure can't out-spangle Reba!"
"Twang," Strait's 26th studio album, surfaced in August and took over the No. 1 spots on The Billboard 200 and the Top Country Albums chart. The new collection follows last year's platinum-selling "Troubadour," which earned a Grammy for Best Country Album earlier this year.
McEntire, meanwhile, will hit the road in support of "Keep On Loving You," her most recent studio effort, which also hit shelves in August. The album marked her first solo set to debut at No. 1 on The Billboard 200.
In October, Womack released a new single, "There Is a God," the lead-off to the singer's still-untitled and forthcoming seventh studio album, which is scheduled for release early next year. The track debuted at No. 60 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
