George Strait’s Final Concert Included Massive Set List, Special Guests
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.
It was a three-hour concert with a 40-song set list, including 20 of Strait's 60 No. 1 singles. His opening song was from way back in 1995, 'Check Yes or No,' and after playing the hit, he told the crowd, “I can’t tell you how excited I am to be here tonight, it’s been on my mind since we started this tour two years ago!”
After playing 'A Fire I Can't Put Out,' Strait invited his first special guest of the evening onstage to perform 'Lovebug.' It was none other than Vince Gill, who also performed 'Does Ft. Worth Ever Cross Your Mind' with the legend.
Jason Aldean hit the stage with Strait, performing 'Fool Hearted Memory' and 'Nobody in His Right Mind Would Have Left Her,' and Eric Church joined for 'Cowboys Like Us' and 'Easy Come Easy Go,' which they also played in Kansas City in January.
Sheryl Crow, Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, and Kenny Chesney were also featured special guests of the evening, each performing two songs with Strait. During the encore, Strait and his guests performed three songs, including 'All My Ex's Live In Texas,' 'Folsom Prison Blues,' and fittingly, 'The Cowboy Rides Away.'
