George Strait is riding into the sunset.
Often called the King of Country Music, the recording artist announced his retirement during a recent press conference at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tennessee.
The Country crooner also said that he would embark on his final tour, joined by his popular duet partner Martina McBride. Called the Cowboy Rides Away Tour, the trek kicked off on January 18, 2013 in Lubbock, Texas.
Now, after several sold out concerts, the singing stars ride into St. Paul, Minnesota on February 15. The duo then heads for Grand Forks, Buffalo, Hartford, Knoxville, Lexington, Houston, Greensville, Greensboro, Albuquerque, Las Cruces, North Little Rock, New Orleans and San Antonio.

George Strait rode to fame after his first single “Unwound” became a hit in 1981. Now, in 2013, 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.
