George Strait will announce the final leg of The Cowboy Rides Away Tour on Monday, Sept. 9 during a live press conference from the AT&T Stadium (home of the Dallas Cowboys). The press conference is set to begin at 11 a.m. CDT. Strait fans can read about the announcement here.
Last year, Strait announced his intentions to retire from touring and his final tour, The Cowboy Rides Away Tour, during a press conference at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville (watch the announcement below).
The industry has rallied to honor Strait’s legendary career, which includes 60 No. 1 songs throughout his 32 years in the industry, and album sales of more than 68 million units. On Wednesday (Aug. 28), Nashville’s music industry gathered at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville to celebrate Strait’s enduring influence on Country music. The singer-songwriter will also be honored with Billboard‘s Legend of Live award, a title given to Sir Elton John, rock band Journey, and a select few other touring artists.
