Back in 2014, George Strait performed the final show of his touring career at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, for a crowd of over 104,000 people. To this day, it’s the largest single-show stadium attendance on American soil.
George also recorded an album featuring performances from that show, and it featured a number of famous friends. Titled The Cowboy Rides Away Tour: Live from AT&T Stadium, it featured duets with Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson and more. And it also featured fellow Texan Miranda Lambert.
Singing “How ‘Bout Them Cowgirls” and one of my all-time favorites, “Run,” Miranda’s performance was one of the highlights of the show.
She intro’d the performance with a heartfelt little story about touring with George all the way back in 2006, and how she got into a fight with her dad after getting her first tattoo. George, being the sweetheart that he is, got a bunch of fake tattoos for the crew to smooth everything over with dad.
And the rest was history.
So without further ado, the great George Strait, and the always impressive Miranda Lambert, singing “How ‘Bout The Cowgirls” and George’s 2001 hit, “Run.”
