George's music has been such a big part of annual fishing trips around the campfire with my brothers. His Live At The Astrodome CD is a must have. Can't wait to see him again Friday night. Thanks George!

"THE KING" of music. Name another artist that's done what George Strait has or any that will. Prince? Nope. Does he have a big ego? Nope. Weird persona? Nope Draw attention to himself in that "quirky" Lady Gaga way? Ummm ...nope. Family man? Yes. Jeans, boots, hat and some ocean front property in Arizona. Hell yes! Doesn't get better than that. Thank you George!

Mr. Strait is a class act, and a true gentleman that sticks to his honor and integrity. I wish him the best and will continue to listen to his wonderful music.

That said, he's a solid live performer who enjoyed one of the best backing band on the circuit with the exception of the Jones Boys and the Strangers in their day. Nice career, solid dependable record sales and a decent guy but hardly the "King" of anything.

Who rights these headlines and captions? -- "rodeo, adios" -- The guy is a country singer not another Gene Autry. I know, moderator. You'll kill this since I criticized the editing personnel.

He once said while attending a "country" music awards program,that they have to create another category for the new crop of "pop" music singers that call themselves "country" those baseball hat, sunglasses wearing cookie cutter guys and the Underwood, Swift crowd...they ain't country.

The concert was great as always .George is a superstar. I always have the same minor complaint. He never finishes The Cowboy Rides Away at the close of the show. It's my favorite. He should. Especially now, that it's the name of the tour
