In the 17 months since George Strait walked onto the stage at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, to kick off the first leg of his two-year The Cowboy Rides Away tour the country icon has played 45 SRO arenas and stadiums in 31 states, singing his remarkable catalog of hits for well over 1 million fans.
His star-studded roster of opening acts has included Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Merle Haggard, Little Big Town, Sheryl Crow, Vince Gill, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Lee Ann Womack and Chris Young. Strait has also – with the Military Warriors Support Foundation – handed the keys to a new house to four Marine veterans, one National Guard veteran, and 21 Army veterans.
On Saturday, the beloved Texas cowboy will close the tour in the home of the Dallas Cowboys – AT&T Stadium, where he played the venue's first show five years ago.
"At sound check, there was still construction going on," he remembered with a laugh at a press conference there last year with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. "It was the only time I've ever had to wear a hard hat during sound check!"
