GEORGE STRAIT TOUR A SUCCESS

Just off his "Road Less Traveled" tour, George Strait just came off three sold-out shows in San Antonio, Dallas and Oklahoma City.

The tour was a success -- the final numbers are in, and the tour brought in close to $19 million in ticket sales, making it one of the top draws for country acts this year.

Breaking it down, that comes to $790,000 on average per show -- and that's not even including food, drinks and souvenir T-shirts and hats.

The reviews are positive as well -- the LA Times praises Strait's "no-frills honesty," and the Albany Times Union says he "made every person in the sold-out house feel like he was singing straight to them." George can relax now with the knowledge of a job well done. His next confirmed performance is in February, at the Houston Livestock & Rodeo Show.
