Reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year George Strait will play his final concert June 7, 2014, at the 100,000-seat capacity AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The show, marking the end of his Cowboy Rides Away tour, as well as more than 30 years of live concert performances, is set to include an all-star lineup of guest artists (performing three songs each), including Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Ronnie Dunn, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and Lee Ann Womack. Opening the show for the King of Country's final concert will be "Kings of Texas Swing" Asleep at the Wheel. Tickets for the concert go on sale Friday, Dec. 6 at 10:00 AM CT and can be purchased via George's official website.

One week before that final show, the legendary entertainer takes his tour to Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. For the May 31 concert, he'll be joined by special guests Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. The event will mark a both a last and first for him, as he's never played the iconic stadium before. Tickets for the May 31 show go on sale this Saturday (Nov. 23) online at Ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.

George's latest single, "I Got a Car," is currently climbing the charts.
