George Strait has had a colorful musical career that has spanned decades and entertained thousands. This coming year, country music icon George Strait will be finishing the second leg of a magnificent and truly emotional tour. The Cowboy Rides Away is a two-year tour that will take Strait to multiple cities and venues to give his fans one final and really memorable performance. Yes, George Strait, one of the original cowboys of the music industry, will be riding away into the sunset.
The farewell tour will cover 26 performances and promises to be an event to remember for country music fans. Joining the music icon are Sheryl Crow, Martina McBride, Jason Aldean, Eric Church and other country artists who want to pay tribute to Strait and share center stage with him one last time.
George Strait is hanging his cowboy hat after decades in the industry, but there’s no stopping him from continuing to create and produce music. The retirement is from live performances and the concert tour circuit, and this is why country music fans are looking forward to the Cowboy Rides Away performances scheduled from January to May 2014.
George Strait is an imposing figure in country music and is even considered as one of the most iconic country performers. His career started in 1981 and his first hit was the song “Unwound”. From there, Strait sold more than 70 million records. Naturally, he has been elevated to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Strait also ranks 12th in the list of America’s Best Selling Recording artists. As a singer and an actor, Strait is believed to have earned some $300 million in his more than 30-year career.
George Strait did not rise to stardom overnight. His was a story of humble beginnings. He was born and raised at the family farm in Pearsall, Texas and was headed for a life of farming. While studying at Southwest Texas State University, he eloped with Norma, his high school sweetheart.
Strait started his musical career by performing in a band while still in active Army service in Hawaii. He was so good that MCA records noticed him and offered him a contract in the 1980s. One admirable thing about Strait is that he never experimented with his music nor did he stray away from the country genre. He won multiple awards and holds the record for the “biggest-selling boxed set in country music history.”
