ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The new $1.1 billion Dallas Cowboys stadium doesn't have an announced sponsor yet - but now it has a name.

Team owner Jerry Jones announced Wednesday that the venue in Arlington will be called Cowboys Stadium.

Country star George Strait will headline the opening event at Cowboys Stadium. The June 6 concert will also feature Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton and Julianne Hough (huff) from "Dancing With the Stars."

The Cowboys on Aug. 21 will host Tennessee in their first preseason game at the new venue, which replaces Texas Stadium in Irving.
