Lee Ann Womack Added as Additional Support for Strait, McEntire Tour
Lee Ann Womack has been added to the list of performers for George Strait’s forthcoming headlining tour to support “Twang,” his latest album.
The outing, which will also feature Reba McEntire, will be kicking off in Baltimore on January 26. Dates have been set so far through a performance in Des Moines, IA on April 10 with visits to 18 cites in between.
In a recent press statement Womack said, this is classic country right from the source. I can’t imagine there being a better tour for me to be a part of than with Reba McEntire and George McEntire. I’m not imagining right now.
Womack added, I am trying to decide what I should wear. There’s no way to out spangle Reba or out starch George.
“Twang,” the 26th studio album for Strait, was released in August and hit the No. 1 spot on Top country Albums and Billboard’s 200 charts. The new set follows “Troubadour” from last year. The platinum selling album earlier this year won the Grammy award Best Country Album.
Meanwhile, McEntire will be hitting the road to support her latest studio album “Keep On Loving You,” also released in August. The new set is her first solo album to make it’s debut in the No. 1 position on Billboard’s 200 chart.
Womack released her new single in October, “There Is a God.” It’s a lead off for Womack’s forthcoming and still untitled seventh studio album, scheduled to be released early next year. The new single debuted in the No. 60 position on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
