Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 15, 2012
The stampede is on, spreading like wildfire. It’s the sound of thousands of loyal fans worldwide, saddling up to get their seats before the music stops: before the smooth singing cowboy croons his farewell song.
George Strait formally announced his retirement at a recent press conference at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee. In his remarks, he announced plans for a final two-year tour, and said: “We start out in Lubbock. We always enjoy playing Lubbock." The tour, dubbed The Cowboy Rides Away Tour, kicks off on January 18, 2013 once again at the United Spirit Arena. Strait also announced that his popular duet partner Martina McBride is scheduled once again to open the shows.

The King of Country Music rode to success after his first single “Unwound” became a reigning hit in 1981. Now, in 2012, he says his The Cowboy Rides Away Tour will be his final goodbye ride, starting in 2013 and continuing into 2014. “It’s been a hard decision for me to make, but as far as the touring goes, I’ve decided that I’m not going to tour anymore after these next two years. This is going to be a very special, emotional tour for me. Everywhere we're going holds fond memories and I'm looking forward to paying my respects,” said Strait.
“I kinda always had it in the back of my mind, when I turned 60, it might be the time to start thinking about it (retiring from touring). It was kinda important to me to pick that time. I believe I made the right decision. Only time will tell." Strait celebrated his 60th birthday on May 18, 2012.
Strait has enjoyed phenomenal success as a country music artist, and has been called "King George" by many. He is known for his unique style of western swing music, bar-room ballads, honky-tonk style, and fresh yet traditional Country music. George Strait has recorded 59 number-one hit singles as of 2012; and he holds the world record for the most number-one hit singles, more than any other artist in the history of music on any chart or in any genre.
Strait has also been nominated for more Country Music Association (CMA) and Academy of Country Music (ACM) awards, and has more wins in both categories, than any other artist. Plus, he has sold more than 68.5 million albums in the U.S. and his certifications include 13 multi-platinum, 33 platinum, and 38 gold albums.
McBride has been called the “Celine Dion of Country Music" for her big-voiced ballads and soprano range. Seven of her studio albums and two of her compilations have received an RIAA Gold Certification or higher. McBride has sold over 14 million albums, and won the CMA’s "Female Vocalist of the Year" award four times. She is tied with Reba McEntire for the most wins. McBride has also won the ACM’s "Top Female Vocalist" award three times.
