George Strait Announces Retirement From Touring [AUDIO]

Using the Country Music Hall of Fame as his stage, George Strait announced plans to end his “structured” touring schedule.  He cut back the number of dates on his tours a few years ago, so a full blown tour year for George is about 20 dates.  He plans 2 more years of touring so there will only be about 40 chances to catch one of his shows.  Click read more for specific dates and highlights of the press conference.

George, who turned 60 earlier this year, says it was hard decision to make.  And used the term “structured tour” to indicate if there’s a special event he may just show up.

Appropriately enough, the final tour will be called “The Cowboy Rides Away.”  George says it’s the song that usually closes his shows and he even played it for former Presidet Bush during his final days in office.
