“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 after announcing his farewell tour.

“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.
