George Strait's farewell concert to become a TV special, album

By Kellie Michaels. CREATED Aug 19, 2014
George Strait's final concert on the "Cowboy Rides Away" tour will become both a television special and a new live album.
 
His June 7 final concert at AT&T Stadium near Dallas was recorded and will be released as a 20-track live album by his longtime label, MCA Nashville, on Sept. 16.
 
“The Cowboy Rides Away: Live From AT&T Stadium” contains 20 hits from throughout George’s remarkable career, and features his special guests from the concert: Jason Aldean, Ray Benson, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, and George’s son, George “Bubba” Strait, Jr. 
 
In related news, CMT will premiere the two-hour special, "George Strait: The Cowboy Rides Away," on August 29 at 7 p.m. ET. It features footage from the AT&T Stadium show, which set a record for largest concert in North American history with 104,793 in attendance. It broke the previous record of 87,500 set in 1981 by the Rolling Stones.
 
Besides George's performance, the CMT special will also include many of his guests from the farewell concert. The TV special will also include new interviews with King George.
