Two of the most impressive names in all of country music have risen to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. King George Strait and Mr. Garth Brooks were called out by several of their peers, and they both made good on the dare.
George Strait may have hung up his touring hat, but his live show can live on forever in a soon-to-be released live album. On Sept. 16, Strait will unleash 'The Cowboy Rides Away: Live From AT&T Stadium,' a 20-track live album recorded at his very last concert.
George Strait is known for timeless country music, and his always-present black cowboy hat. At his final Cowboy Rides Away Tour stop, the singer tossed his hat into the audience, and one lucky man caught it -- and he plans on keeping it.
The set list for George Strait's final concert in Arlington, Texas was big. The show shattered records and the singer proved his presence in country music will not easily be forgotten, or ever replaced.
