George Strait Kicks Off His Farewell Tour

georgestraitvia Essential Broadcast Media Press Release:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – George Strait announced the news of his two-year final U.S. tour last fall, and now the time has come to saddle up for the 2013 leg of The Cowboy Rides Away Tour, opening at the United Spirit Arena in Lubbock, Texas this Friday, Jan. 18.  Joining the icon on tour will be special guest Martina McBride, who is not only a fan, but a longtime friend of Strait’s.
The excitement surrounding this tour was evident when tickets in most markets sold out within mere minutes of going on sale.  Sharing in the fans’ enthusiasm, Strait reveals, “I’ve got over 30 years of great memories out on that road.  I’m sure these last two are going to be just as good or better. It’s going to be fun but at the same time sad. I can’t wait!”
With 59 No. 1 hit songs under his belt, concert-goers can expect to hear many of their Strait favorites plus new music including his latest single, “Give It All We Got Tonight,” one of the first releases from Strait’s forthcoming album due out later this year. “Give It All We Got Tonight” is currently available on iTunes.
