George Strait will be launching his two-year farewell tour, The Cowboy Rides Away Tour, early next year.
Strait revealed the first 21 markets he will visit during the winter and spring legs of his 2013 tour at a live press event at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.
Special guest Martina McBride is set to join Strait for the 2013 dates, which begin on January 18 in Lubbock, Texas.
Strait, who celebrated his 60th birthday earlier this year, shared, "This is going to be a very special, emotional tour for me. Everywhere we're going holds fond memories and I'm looking forward to paying my respects." Strait plans to continue recording new music and play select dates around the country following the completion of the tour.
