George Strait Set For Live Album, CMT Concert Special

unnamedGeorge Strait performed his historic final concert in Dallas, Texas this year and broke the indoor concert attendance record for North America. More than 104,000 people attended the show that featured special guests including Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Sheryl Crow and Strait’s son, George Strait, Jr.

While fans sang along to chart-topping hit after hit, CMT was filming the event for George Strait: The Cowboy Rides Away, a CMT concert special that will air Friday, Aug. 29, 2014 at 7 p.m. ET. The two-hour special will air exclusively on CMT and will also feature new interviews with the “King Of Country Music” and selections from his 60 No. 1 hits. The project was executive produced by Erv Woolsey and Louie Messina, produced and co-directed by Danny O’Bryen, and co-directed by Brian Lockwood.

Additionally, Strait will release a 20-track live album recorded at his final tour date. The Cowboy Rides Away: Live From AT&T Stadium will release on MCA Nashville on Sept. 16.
