George Strait is still the King of Country. The singer sold out the final stop on his farewell tour, The Cowboy Rides Away 2014 in only one day.

The concert will take place on June 7, 2014 in Arlington,Texas, with more than 100,000 fans in attendance. Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Ronnie Dunn and Lee Ann Womack will all take the stage as well, to perform for the last show of Strait’s touring career.

“Wow. To see this response from the fans to our final show is humbling and exciting at the same time,” Strait says. “This is going to be an incredible night, and I feel very blessed this holiday knowing how many of you we’ll get to see us next year on our final tour.”

Fans unable to score a seat for his final concert still have a chance to see the 61-year-old in action. He will auction off two pairs of front-row tickets to benefit The Jenifer Strait Foundation — a charity named in honor of his daughter, who was killed in a car accident in 1986, when she was only 13 years old. Through the foundation, the Straits help several children’s charities, mostly near their hometown of San Antonio, Texas. To bid on the auction, which ends on Dec. 17, click here.
