George Strait has announced that after the next two years, he will no longer go out on tour.  He will still perform special event shows here and there, but will no longer have “structured” tours and is NOT retiring, as he will continue to make new music.

Strait has also announced the dates of his 2013 tour, titled “The Cowboy Rides Away.”  As of now, no Florida dates have been listed as you’ll see below.  Martina McBride will join him on tour, as will Miranda Lambert for a show and other “surprises.”
