Cowboys star

George Straight to open Cowboys Stadium

On his Facebook page, KSCS on-air personality Hawkeye is reporting that Julianne Hough, suffering from laryngitis, has cancelled her appearance as an opener for George Strait tomorrow at Cowboys Stadium. Lee Ann Womack has been drafted as a last minute replacement. The show gets underway at 5:30 p.m.

Within the last 24 hours, workers at Cowboys Stadium have been busy cleaning seats, testing the sound system, completing landscaping and setting up 10,000 chairs for today’s George Strait concert.

Stadium general manager Jack Hill said that more than 400 people were cleaning the stadium and that 1,000 construction workers were putting up drywall, testing plumbing and laying sod outside the stadium. 

Parking lots and the west end-zone plaza will open at 2 p.m. Doors to the stadium will open at 4 p.m. today.
