About

After more than 30 years of a lifestyle that often required lots of time on the road, country legend George Strait has saddled up for what he says will be his final tour, a two-year outing dubbed The Cowboy Rides Away Tour.

More than 20 farewell concerts take place between January and May of 2014, and the shows -- many of which will feature a big-name special guest such as Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Martina McBride, or Sheryl Crow -- are proving to be hot tickets as fans celebrate the storied career of the country mainstay. He announced his retirement from the road during a September 2012 press conference in Nashville, and played more than 20 farewell shows during early 2013.

Strait doesn't plan to ride into the sunset -- he's just done with long tours. He recently renewed his deal with MCA Records, so he'll keep releasing new music and plans to also play select concert dates in the future. But grueling trips aboard the tour bus are in his rearview mirror.
After the Urban Cowboy ethos dominated country music in the late '70s, Strait emerged in the early '80s with his take on classic country stylings, and is often credited with paving the way for other neo-traditionalist superstars like Garth Brooks, Dwight Yoakam, and Randy Travis.
Strait's catalog includes timeless hits like "Amarillo by Morning," "All My Ex's Live in Texas," "Love Without End, Amen," and "I've Come to Expect it From You."

A 2006 inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame, Strait's remarkable career has included a record 60 No. 1 songs on the country chart. He holds many other country sales records, including most No. 1 albums and most gold, platinum, and multi-platinum albums. Only Elvis Presley and The Beatles have more combined gold and platinum albums in their catalogs.

A native of Poteet, Texas, south of San Antonio, Strait grew up in neighboring Frio County. He first took up music in high school as a member of a rock garage band. After a stint in the Army, he  earned an Agriculture degree from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos while playing in a bar band that performed around central and south Texas.

Strait signed with MCA Records in 1981, after Erv Woolsey, who ran one of the bars Strait's band played, urged Nashville talent scouts to check him out. Woolsey went on to become Strait's manager.

    Concessions need to be better

    by Shan fan on 5/28/24ISU Cyclones - MidAmerican Energy Field at Jack Trice Stadium - Ames

    All the singers/groups that performed were amazing. The put on a great show and sounded wonderful. The concessions and beer lines were crazy long. Could only pay with a card and the WiFi went down so then couldn’t buy any thing at all.

    Great show, not the best seats

    by Jason on 5/28/24ISU Cyclones - MidAmerican Energy Field at Jack Trice Stadium - Ames

    The show was awesome. King George will always put on a great show. We got seats next to a stairwell though, which I should have thought about. The constant line of people going up and down the stairs made it impossible to see the concert. We wound up going and standing along an open railing for the entire concert because otherwise we wouldn’t have seen anything.

    George Strait is AMAZING

    by Chris on 5/28/24ISU Cyclones - MidAmerican Energy Field at Jack Trice Stadium - Ames

    George Strait is 72 years old and sounds awesome. He was my childhood hero and would love to see him more and if ever possible get a picture with him.

    Fantastic Concert!

    by Neil on 5/28/24ISU Cyclones - MidAmerican Energy Field at Jack Trice Stadium - Ames

    I loved every minute of George Strait. I’m not a big fan of the other 2 groups but they were also very good. The venue wasn’t really prepared for the crowd and it’s a hard place to get out of, but George was wonderful.

    Go for the music, not for a show

    by Country Fan on 5/28/24ISU Cyclones - MidAmerican Energy Field at Jack Trice Stadium - Ames

    If you're looking for a show and excited, loud fans you should look elsewhere. This is a laid back concert with artists that just sit there and play their music. It's like a concert in the park on a Sunday afternoon kind of vibe. Fans just sit and listen. I should have known better, but I was sadly disappointed.

    Music great/ venue organization poor

    by Sandy on 5/28/24ISU Cyclones - MidAmerican Energy Field at Jack Trice Stadium - Ames

    All three performances were wonderful . Issues was getting into the concert and getting food and drinks. It took 45 minutes to get into then concert. There was no funnel system or anything to make organized lines for entry. My husband had to wait over a half hour to get a wrist band and then took an hour to get a beer. First line ran out of beer so he had to go to a second line and start over. This isn’t an issue during football games not sure why there was so many problems during a concert
