I’m going to do a different kind of New Music post today. George Strait’s Cowboy Rides Away tour is in full swing and he came through Houston for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo on Sunday night. Let me tell you, these tickets were hard to come by and we were in the nosebleeds but we were not going to miss his show on his last year of touring. I’ve been going to see George Strait at the rodeo since I was a kid, it just wouldn’t be the same if there were no George Strait at the Houston Rodeo. As you can imagine there are tons of people with the same thing on their mind, 80,000 people actually–setting a new attendance record! As you can imagine there was a lot of walking going on to get through the Reliant Center and Stadium and I decided to wear my Pecos Bill Turquoise boots from Langston’s for the first time. I thought it was probably nuts to wear some boots I’d never worn before when I knew I was going to be doing a lot of walking, but I went ahead and went with it and thought I’d tough it out. Tough it out I did not because they are THE MOST COMFORTABLE boots I own–just as comfortable as my trusty Luccheses. If you are looking for some CUTE AND COMFORTABLE boots you can not go wrong with these. I got many compliments on them!! In addition to my Pecos Bill boots, George Strait did not disappoint either performing lots of his oldies but goodies and new stuff also.
In addition to his performance on Sunday, George Strait also announced his upcoming 40th album will be released on May 14th and called Love is Everything. We’ll talk more about that album around that date, I can’t wait!!
