George Strait embarks on his final tour next year, titled The Cowboy Rides Away Tour, present by Quicken Loans. Tickets for the legend's final stadium show, at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, sold out in a handful of hours after going on sale.

As the grand finale of his two-year tour, the music will all go down on June 7, 2014 with a crowd of more than 100,000. Six-time Grammy Award-winning group Asleep At The Wheel will open the show. Current superstars Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and Lee Ann Womack are also slated for the lineup, performing three songs apiece.

"Wow. To see this response from the fans to our final show is humbling and exciting at the same time," Strait says. "This is going to be an incredible night and I feel very blessed this holiday knowing how many of you we'll get to see next year on our final tour."

Louis Messina of The Messina Group added, "When we sat down to plan the final touring years in a career as iconic as George Strait's, we knew we had to do it right. Well, I don't know about you, but this feels like a pretty good way to honor George and his music while saying farewell to his days on the road… 100,000 tickets, that's big time!"

Additionally, Strait will auction off two pairs of front row seats (as well as meet-and-greet passes) to each show, with proceeds going to The Jenifer Strait Foundation.
