/actually, early Strait wasn't too bad.

He's not hanging his hat in Tennessee if the tour starts and ends in Texas...

Final Tour?
Why now?
Why not 20 years ago?

Him and the other neo-traditionalists (Dwight Yoakum, Randy Travis, Allison Krauss) were the only thing that got me briefly interested in country music

I guess he's going to retire to his ocean front property in Arizona.

i only recently (last 2 or 3 years) got reinterested in george strait...really liked his early early stuff when i was like 8 to 10 years old, and i liked "all my exes"

FINALLY got to see dwight a few months ago...at billy bob's...great place for the first dwight experience! LOVED that show!

if i went down the road a piece, maybe a 'bout 20 to 40 miles, and hung out at a gas station around midnight, i may just get to see a drunken naked randy travis...not that anyone would want to see that

would love to do MUCH more than just see krauss in concert!

Mr. Strait jams, however there is still good country music to be had; that zac brown fellow has been putting out some good tunes.

I am so glad I don't have a radio or listen to crappy music, because this is about the 12th time I've heard someone complaining about getting a song stuck in their head and I have no idea how the song goes.

I'm gonna have to second this. Dwight puts on one hell of a show! Billy Bob's is the perfect place to see him if you can. I saw him there a few years ago, and that was one of the most fun shows I've been to.

Saw George Strait a couple of years ago in Vegas and he was great...what was really funny, was when he walked on stage, I swear to all that's holy, you could smell the estrogen rush and feel the humidity go up about 18% from the all the women's panties getting damp....Dude is 60-ish and looks sort of like a bumpkin, but he carries himself like a guy who knows what he's got going on and the women loved it...

/been a fan of his for most of those 30 years (yes, I'm old)....

will he sing a song about the southland?

Saw him through my radio job about 11 years ago on his tour with the Dixie Chicks, Asleep At The Wheel, Jo Dee Messina, Mark Wills, Kenny Chesney, & Tim McGraw. Dixie Chicks & Asleep At The Wheel were awesome, Jo Dee also put on a great show with some surprise rock & pop covers thrown in, (she's quite the performer.) Wills, Chesney, & McGraw were predictably meh, and George was a snoozefest. I don't get the appeal. But that's ok. Different strokes & all that.

Mainstream country isn't really my thing. It all sounds like one of about 4 formulas to me. Stuff like Joe Ely, BR549, Southern Culture On The Skids, Webb Wilder, Mojo Nixon, The Refreshments, The Beat Farmers, Unknown Hinson, Trent Summar, Cowboy Junkies, & Lucinda Williams however... I dig.

are you a woman? if so, not your type.
are you a man? if so, obviously straight and not into cowboy-esque country types.
the majority of his appeal is aimed at women who like country gentlemen
he is not much of a "performer" on stage...he sings...he sings well...but that's pretty much it

We went to a wedding (friend of my wife) and during the reception they played nothing but George Strait songs.

Then my wife pointed out that George Strait songs were mostly about break-ups and heartache, which makes perfect music for a couple starting their life together!

At my best friend's wedding, their first dance together was to Tina Turner's What's Love Got To Do With It

I'm a straight guy.

A lot of my favorite artists don't jump around and stuff. They just stand there and sing and/or play. I don't require visual stimulation from my musicians. I guess I just find George's music bland & stereotypical. He does it well, it's just not my thing.

I once DJ'ed a wedding where the requested couple's first dance was AC/DC's "Highway To Hell". I did another one where the father & the bride specifically requested Alabama's "There's No Way" (lyrics here) as their special dance. I told them it was probably not the song they really wanted, but they insisted.

So THAT'S how it is in their family...

Lemme guess, it was either that or David Allen Coe's "One More Time"?

I have only had one surgery in my lifetime - a tonsilectomy and adenoidectomy when I was like seven, so a tick over 25 years ago now. I just so happened to be the first patient the doctor had ever operated on. How does this relate to this thread? To make a long story short, my parents told the doctor that I was a George Strait fan, and he mentioned having gone to school with George Strait... and assured me that, yes, all of his ex's really lived in Texas.

My wedding we played "Were in this Together Now" by NIN, wasn't the "first dance" or anything special like that, but we thought it was appropriate.

I'd add Clint black and Vince Gill to that group. Yoakam is still my favorite country artist.

Jo Dee is (overused word alert) PHENOMENAL. Saw her during the Delicious Surprise tour. (Also thru a radio gig---backstage, too).Easily one of the best shows I've ever seen, and yes, I'm a bit jaded, so that's saying something.

As for Strait, I like most of his stuff okay, with a few standing out. And I thought he did a decent job in Pure Country.

If he leaves now he can still make Cheyenne.

So does this mean he is opening up a theater in Branson soon?

I've seen George Strait twice in concert. No laser shows, no smoke, just him singing. It was awesome. Hoping to catch his farewell tour in Sacramento.
