The Cowboy Rides Away – George Strait’s Final San Antonio Show

George Strait

Once again George Strait breaks another record, and this time it’s one of his own. Strait performed his final show of the year on June 1, 2013 to a sold out crowd of 73,086 fans at the Alamodome in his hometown of San Antonio, breaking the previous attendance record that he himself set back in 2010.

According to George’s website, there were quite a few highlights of the final show of 2013-

Partway through the show Strait broke stride after he performed one of his 60 No. 1’s, ‘River Of Love,” and introduced United States Marine Corps Staff Sergeant / E-6 Jose Sanchez to a captivated audience. Sanchez–with his wife Angela–was then recognized as the 339th recipient of the Military Warriors Support Foundation’s (MWSF) “Homes 4 Wounded Heroes” (H4WH) program. Then, in celebration of the last tour stop of 2013, Strait recognized the Faulkenberry family on stage—U.S. Army SFC John Faulkenberry with wife Sarah—as the final awardees (340th recipient through the overall program; 23rd of the tour) to receive a key directly from Strait. Both families received homes in the San Antonio area. 

The homes made available for the program are donated to MWSF through partnerships and, as unveiled at Strait’s first 2013 show in Lubbock, were awarded to at least one service member at every tour stop on The Cowboy Rides Away Tour.
