George Strait Rides Away at Sacramento, CA

George in Concert Jan 31 2013We have seen the King of Country music in concert over 20 times out here in Northern California.  This is his farewell “The Cowboy Rides Away” tour.

So sad, but, we are glad that we were able to go to his concerts so many times.

Mini Review:

George Strait is tired.  Most of the concert was tough for George.  He perked up at the end and was the young George for a short time.  You could tell he was sad about leaving touring and his fans.  He sat more, he talked more, and he rested more.  But then again, he and I are the same age, so I understand.

Opening for George was the wonderful Martina McBride.

Martina was simply……AWESOME.  She can sing the vocal chords off of anyone.  When she got her first standing ovation she was shocked and she cried.  She said it was the loudest ovation she has ever heard (of course…we in the Sacramento area are the BEST country fans anywhere).  By the time she got her second standing ovation she had recovered and enjoyed it.  We can’t wait for her to visit again!
