I have seen George Strait in Concert 5 or 6 times in my career, but this time was different. “The Cowboy Rides Away” tour brought George to Denver for the final time on Saturday night. The sold-out Pepsi Center was electric. The entire crowd stood for at least the 1st 30 minutes the show and screamed loud enough to rattle the rafters in the hockey arena.

George’s hero Merle Haggard was shown great love by the crowd, despite the fact that he barely had a voice. Merle told the crowd he was battling pneumonia and didn’t even have a voice the day before, but joked he was there because he needed the money. Everyone sang along to every song. It was great to see see two legends in one night.

Lee Ann Womack opened the show and was the perfect way to start the night as she has done so many times for the king of Country.  One of the highlights of the evening for me was meeting Denise & Tracy Hessler, who won front-row tickets from K99. They were absolutely thrilled to be at their 1st George Strait Concert.

We were in row 14 on one of the sides of arena. (Don’t ask me which one.) My wife, Jenny, took some great pictures despite not being next to the stage. We are happy to share them with you.
