George Strait Starts Final Chapter Of Farewell Tour
Well it’s finally here, the final leg of ‘The Cowboy Rides Away Tour!’ Country Music fans nationwide are getting one final chance to see George Strait live in concert.
The first concert of the tour featured opening act, Country Music A-List Superstar, Jason Aldean (pictured below at the concert) in Bossier City, Louisiana on January 9. As with most of the dates, the 2014 opening night sold out in 45 minutes. Throughout the rest of the tour, Strait will feature a guest line-up of some of the biggest names in Country Music. For example, the May 31 date at Foxborough, Mass. will feature Tim McGraw and Faith Hill with the final date, June 7, in Dallas, Texas featuring a who’s who of Country Music that includes Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert and more.
George Strait (pictured above at the 2014 Bossier City concert) was excited for the start of the end of the two-year tour based on this post by Team George Strait on Facebook: “From Team Strait: The excitement level is zooming as we prepare for our first concert of the final leg of the Cowboy Rides Away Tour sponsored by Quicken Loans. The gang is gathered in Bossier City, La and the concert is just hours away. If you are going to the show, let us know what it was like. We hope you enjoy it. Tomorrow night…..Austin, TX.”
At 61, the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year insists that although he won’t produce any major tours, he’ll still make new music and select appearances.
