If you're going to go big, make sure to do it convincingly. That's the trend we're seeing for last month's TicketNetwork.com Top Ten, as ticket sales for the final dates of George Strait's "Cowboy Rides Away" farewell tour far outstripped any other event at TicketNetwork.com.
This shouldn't surprise anyone too much. After all, we've known that the final dates are in 2014 for a little over a year, and on October 24 speculation arose that Strait's final tour date will be on June 7. So now is the time to get your tickets if you want to see him before he hangs up his hat for good, and fans have indeed responded to impending final dates in a big way.
The tour dates with the most ticket sales last month included the January 17 show with Eric Church, the February 7 show with Martina McBride, the February 15 date with Little Big Town, the April 5 show with Lee Ann Womack and Merle Haggard, and the February 28 date with McBride.
