Fresh off being named Entertainer of the Year at the 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards, George Strait's long-running tenure as one of the few country artists not to succumb to the pop-country claw is as relevant as ever. Anyone who grew up in an even moderately rural locale during the 1980s will recognize Strait's performance of the Sanger D. Shafer tune "All My Ex's Live in Texas"; it's as ubiquitous in country music as Stetsons and Justin boots. Now in his early 60s, Strait's streak of chart-topping ballads has reached massive proportions; he's ranked third behind Elvis Presley and the Beatles for the greatest number of gold and platinum albums in the US. During this second leg of the Cowboy Rides Away Tour, Strait's massive legacy of maintaining the sanctity of a genre too often muddied by shitty Toby Keith songs will be given our city's largest stage.
