Strait talk

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published April 10, 2013 at 11:01 a.m.

Country music superstar George Strait is calling it “The Cowboy Rides Away Tour,” Jack W. Hill writes in Thursday's Arkansas Weekend section.

But fans without tickets have good reason to avoid despair: Strait is not retiring or even renouncing performing. His press materials explain, “This final formal tour is a celebration of his 30-plus year career and of his music yet to come.”

In other words, Strait will still write and record music and occasionally perform it, but will withdraw from the kind of mega-tour operations that have become standard for stars of his stature.

Read more about Strait, who will be joined by opening act Martina McBride, in Thursday's Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
