George Strait: Five Greatest Collaborations

We were thinking about George’s classic collaborations over the years, and here are five of his most memorable.

George Strait’s final show of The Cowboy Rides Away Tour presented by Quicken Loans in Arlington, Texas, June 7, was all about collaborations. George performed a huge number of his solo hits, of course, but he also welcomed a grand gallery of special guests, including Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney and Martina McBride, for special duets.

That got us to thinking about George’s classic collaborations over the years, and here are five of his most memorable.

For a complete wrap-up and all the highlights of George’s final show, pick up the July 21 issue of Country Weekly, on newsstands now.

1. “Murder on Music Row” with Alan Jackson

This well-aimed shot at modern country music sounds as hard-hitting and viable today as when George and Alan, the perfect twosome to render this, released it in 2000. This won the CMA Award for Vocal Event of the Year.

2. “Shiftwork” with Kenny Chesney

This was actually Kenny’s song from his album Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates.

3. “Good News, Bad News” with Lee Ann Womack

Two great, traditional voices come together.

4. “Hey Good Lookin’” with Jimmy Buffett, Clint Black, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson and Toby Keith

Does it get any better than this six-pack superstar lineup?

5. “House of Cash” with Patty Loveless

This duet is from George’s album Troubadour. We couldn’t find a video to go with this pick, but you can check it out on Amazon and on iTunes!
