George Strait's 2012 tour will kick off on January 27 in Lafayette, La. and include at least 11 shows across the southern half of the country. The 'Here For a Good Time' hitmaker previously announced that Martina McBride would open all shows on the tour.

“I love Martina," Strait said. "She’s been on our tours before and she’s great. I’m really looking forward to the tour. Martina will definitely make it a special night.”

Tickets for the February 4 show in Las Vegas will go on sale on October 29. There is no information about when the remainder of the dates will be on sale. George Strait's official website does not have any of the dates listed on his calendar page yet.

The tour is in support of Strait's most recent 'Here For a Good Time' album. The title track is currently inside the Top 5 on country music charts.
