George Strait Concert

The king of country music played in front of a sell-out crowd at Reliant Stadium on August 8, 2009.  George Strait thrilled fans of all ages as he played classics including “Heartland” and “The Chair” to new favorites “Write This Down” and “Troubadour.”

Strait brought along newcomer Julianne Hough, crowd favorite Blake Shelton, and award-winning duo Sugarland.

Keeping with tradition, Strait concluded the concert with the bittersweet melody “The Cowboy Rides Away” to thunderous applause from the crowd.
