George Strait’s Best Live Shots [PICTURES]

Since the early 1980s, George Strait has been one of the biggest names in country music, and fans have flocked to see the King of Country live in concert.

In September of 2012, Strait announced that he would be hanging up his cowboy hat and retiring from the road after his final The Cowboy Rides Away Tour. The trek kicked off in January of 2013, and Strait played his “final show” on June 7, 2014, drawing 104,793 fans to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. (Footage from the concert has since been released as a live album and DVD.)

Since then, the country icon has performed at awards shows, and although he will not go out on the road again, he has scheduled a run of concerts at Las Vegas’ new 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena in 2016 and 2017.

“In 2016, I might say, ‘What a dummy,’” Strait said back in September of 2012, when discussing his decision to quit touring. “If that’s the case, I’ll reconsider.”
