George Strait Farewell Tour Opener Set List Revealed

(Radio.com) George Strait's two-year Cowboy Rides Away Tour kicked off Friday night (Jan. 18) in Lubbock, Texas, and by all accounts it was a powerful, satisfying show for Strait fans–and for George himself.

"Strait climbed on stage wearing a button-down shirt, traditional Wranglers and a smile as big as Texas," writes the Lubbock Avalanche Journal's William Kerns, and "from beginning to end, he came across as thrilled and appreciative of the colossal turnout" (over 15,000 people).

As Strait himself had described during a Radio.com interview last fall, his set wasn't just a 'greatest hits' package but, as Kerns, notes, "instead introduc[ed] a number of obvious personal favorites from past albums." These included "Same Kind of Crazy," "All My Exes Live in Texas," "Amarillo by Morning," and "Troubadour."

And, of course, the set finished with "The Cowboy Rides Away."

Martina McBride opened the show (as she will on the entire tour), and as Kerns writes, "she, too, pulled out all the stops" during her "wonderful opening performance." See the full set list here.
