(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) - No horsing around here: music icon George Strait and MCA Nashville are roping fans in again and making tracks with a new album offer of 20 live songs from the legend. Recorded at his momentous The Cowboy Rides Away Tour finale at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas. The Cowboy Rides Away: Live From AT&T Stadium commemorates a night of celebration for one of the most influential figures in country music. Due in stores Sept. 16, the MCA Nashville release contains hits from throughout Strait’s remarkable 30+ year career, features special guests Jason Aldean, Ray Benson (of Asleep at the Wheel), Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert and Martina McBride, and introduces the voice of George “Bubba” Strait, Jr.

The undisputed “King of Country Music” and reigning ACM and CMA Entertainer of the Year performed for over 1 million fans during his two-year, record-breaking, final U.S. tour. The Cowboy Rides Away: Live From AT&T Stadium epitomizes that energy and shared emotion (largely thanks to a Texas-sized crowd of nearly 105,000). Equally prevalent on the album is Strait’s sentimentality and immense gratitude for his legion of fans.

As previously announced, Strait fans have an opportunity to relive the June 7, 2014 The Cowboy Rides Away Tour Dallas date with a two-hour “George Strait: The Cowboy Rides Away” concert special airing Aug. 29 exclusively on CMT (check local listings).
