George Strait was just named Entertainer of the Year at the ACM Awards. Picking up the award didn’t sway his decision to make his The Cowboy Rides Away Tour his last full tour, however. While he plans to play the occasional show, he won’t launch another tour after wrapping the final leg of his current one at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on June 7.
“It’s been a great two years of touring,” George said. “We probably got about 10 more things to do this year, and then we’re done for a while. I’ll probably take a year off and maybe do a record, and then I’m gonna do a few dates after that…here and there.”
George will wrap his final tour with an all-star lineup, including Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Ronnie Dunn, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and Lee Ann Womack, who will each play three songs. Asleep At The Wheel will be the opening act for the concert.
