This Is Where The Cowboy Rides Away

George Strait Announces Final Tour.

Yesterday it was announced that George Strait will be putting on his last official, structured tours in 2013 and 2014.

This is very sad news that hit me like a ton of bricks! I, along with many of you out there, have been singing along to King George for as long as I can remember. I grew up with my Mama, my Grandma, my aunts and every other important lady in my life in love with him. And naturally, my cousins and I followed in their good taste footsteps!

He has had 59 #1 hits in his career and I believe I could sing them all word for word. They are the kind of songs that never get old. I could listen to a Strait song for hours on hours and not need a different artist in there to change things up. How many other singers can keep a person that focused? Not many!

As I started writing this I turned Pandora on and immediately “You Look So Good in Love” filled the room. A huge smile came across my face and I was at a great place. There is no explaining it, you just get all happy inside. That is what George Strait does to people. And for that, millions of country music fans will always be grateful!

I will do whatever it takes to see one of these shows! That is a PROMISE!
