The Houston Press reports that country music icon George Strait will soon embark upon his "The Cowboy Rides Away Tour," which, as you might suspect from the name, is being billed as his last. According to his website, Strait will stop at Verizon Arena for a concert on April 12. You might recall that Strait — who plays in the round — holds the attendance record for the venue, having put 18,004 souls into what was then Alltel Arena, back in 2006.

Country fans, ya'll need not go rushing for your credit cards right this second or anything. Tickets won't go on sale to the general public until Dec. 14. The front page of Strait's website states that tickets go on sale Oct. 13, but I've confirmed that that Oct. 13 is NOT the on-sale date for the Verizon Arena show.

The tour will run throughout 2013 and into 2014. According to the Press story, Strait said, "After the last date in 2014, that's it for the touring."

While we're all no doubt inclined to take George at his word about this being his last tour, surely many people are thinking, "Yeah, that's what Ozzy said, too."
