Another week with a winner able to be seen from miles away. George Strait’s final tour gets underway early next year, and tickets have gone on sale, including for our little local venue, the Erwin Center. ACL hung in there, as it usually does for the week after it’s over, and Drake climbed up a few spots to make it to #3.
The Cowboys had to make room, but remained at a respectable #4, joined by Pearl Jam at #5. Their latest album, Lightning Bolt, arrived on (mostly digital) shelves on the 14th. The Lightning Bolt Tour is in full swing. Fans have until early December to catch them in North America before they enjoy the warm summer air in Australia in January.
Pink drops by once more. She rescheduled a few concerts for a little vocal cord rest, but the remainder of The Truth About Love Tour appears to be safe.
Elton returns, while the 49ers end up just one spot lower. Finally, the Dodgers hang on to the countdown, barely, while their NCLS hope hang by a similarly thin thread.
This week it’s obviously time for a little classic country, hand-picked by our office’s biggest George Strait fan:
