The time for newly crowed CMA Entertainer of the Year George Strait to retire from the road is coming, whether we like it or not. Now we know when the last show will happen and just who will be there to help send him off in style.

The closing show of George’s The Cowboy Rides Away Tour—his last as a touring artist—will take place June 7, 2014, at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, otherwise known as the home of the Dallas Cowboys. Joining George to sing three songs each will be an incredible lineup of guests including Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Ronnie Dunn, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and Lee Ann Womack.

Opening the show will be George's friends, beloved Texas swing group Asleep at the Wheel.

Tickets for this event will go on sale to the public Friday, Dec. 6, and can be purchased through George’s website.

In the meantime, George is still busy making music, and his new single, “I Got a Car,” is on its journey to the upper reaches of the charts.
