George Strait Reaching Back To Older Songs For Farewell Tour

(Radio.com) Last week George Strait kicked off his two-year farewell Cowboy Rides Away Tour, which he announced last fall during a press conference at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.

So what can fans expect from these shows? As George told Radio.com, there are a few songs he's definitely looking forward to playing. "'Troubadour' for sure," he said. "And 'I'll Always Remember You.' That's gonna be one that's probably going to have the most meaning during these shows. And I kinda wrote it so the fans would know how I really felt. That's gonna be a tough one."

He also said he's "probably going to reach back and pull some of that old stuff out" that he and the band haven't done in a long time, "just for good memory's sake." He's got plenty to work with, then, as his large, impressive catalog reaches back more than 30 years and includes such early gems as "The Chill of an Early Fall," "Ocean Front Property," "Unwound," "Amarillo by Morning," and of course, "The Cowboy Rides Away." More including streams.
