“We are thrilled make Texas legend George Strait our first concert announcement at Dickies Arena,” Trail Drive Management Corp.’s Matt Homan, president and general manager of Dickies Arena, said in a statement. “This performance will be in one of George Strait’s most intimate arena settings, and we can’t wait to bring this to Fort Worth.”
