    George Strait will finish off his two-year farewell tour in the biggest house in his home state of Texas — the Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

    The country superstar held a rare news conference Monday at the stadium to announce the last leg of his The Cowboy Rides Away Tour.

    He announced he was retiring from the road last year but still plans to record, recently agreeing to a deal with longtime label MCA Records for five more studio albums.

    Strait will take a who's who of country music on the road, including Merle Haggard, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow and Ronnie Dunn.

    The 61-year-old kicks off Jan. 9 and plans stops in Nashville, Los Angeles, Chicago and Foxborough, Mass., the first of two stadium shows to end the tour.

    The date of the show in Arlington has not yet been scheduled.
