Updated August 2014 – George Strait’s last tour is called “Cowboy Rides Away”. He will continue to cut records but stop touring. This is his lat two year national tour to promote his country music. In future, he may continue making new songs but will not tour. Strait performed his finale at the Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. Strait started singing in public in South Austin. He mentioned this to his fans at his live concert. He made his concert special in Dallas to show his appreciation for the state that helped to launch his career as a country music singer. His protégé, Jason Aldean, did not make songs in his style. Perhaps he did not encourage it for Aldean to have his own unique brand of music.
