George Strait to wrap up final tour with star-studded list of special guests
Country icon George Strait will close out his "The Cowboy Rides Away" trek next summer in Arlington, TX, with an all-star lineup including Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert and several others.
The King of Country will play his final tour stop for 100,000 fans at Arlington's AT&T Stadium. Special guests will include Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Ronnie Dunn, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Martina McBride and Lee Ann Womack.
Grammy-winning Asleep at the Wheel will handle opening duties for Strait's final arena show.
Tickets for the tour closer go on sale Dec. 6.
The final leg of Strait's closing tour begins Jan. 9 in Bossier City, LA, and ventures through two dozen major markets before the final stop in Arlington, TX.
Strait most recently unveiled "Here for a Good Time," his 39th studio album, in Sept. 2011. The effort, which was recorded at Shrimpboat Sound Studio in Key West, FL, peaked at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's Country Albums chart.
The Grammy winner has sold more than 68 million albums since his 1981 studio debut, "Straight Country" and holds the record for most No. 1 hit singles in any genre with 59 singles.
