As only the King of Country can, Strait has wooed fans of all generations at every packed-in show on his final concert tour. The only act in the history of music to have a Top 10 hit every year for over three decades, Strait announces the addition after his sold-out stop in Tulsa, Okla. Saturday night, that prompted the Tulsa World to rave: °For every song, Strait sounded spot on with his iconic voice. The Texas twang was as good as it has ever been.
