With a career that spans three decades, George Strait has racked up the most #1 singles of any artist in history including Elvis (57 to date inclusive of all charts). In addition to his nearly 69 million records sold, his 33 different platinum or multi-platinum albums account for the most RIAA platinum certifications in country music and is 3rd in all genres behind only The Beatles and Elvis Presley. Strait was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006. He received a GRAMMY Award for Best Country Album in 2008 for Troubadour. "I still enjoy it" says Strait, "I still love it. As long as I love it and enjoy it and am having fun, then I'm gonna keep doing it. I'm motivated by what I've always been motivated by—trying to make the best records that I can make and doing the best shows that I can do. Whenever that doesn't motivate me anymore, then I'll have to quit. It's still a lot of fun for me now." Strait will continue to record new music and play select dates around the country following the completion of the tour. [from George Strait biography]

During his storied career in country music, Vince Gill has consistently set the bar higher and higher for himself. The singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist has recorded more than 17 studio albums, sold more than 26 million copies and won 20 GRAMMY Awards and 18 CMA Awards. The two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year is the only man to ever win five consecutive CMA Male Vocalist of the Year awards and the only songwriter to win Song of the Year four times.
