The King of Country is taking to the gridiron on Sunday, September 8.
George Strait, who is retiring from active touring but will continue to perform and make music after he wraps his farewell tour in 2014, will join the Dallas Cowboys on the field Sunday night, September 8, when the squad, considered America's Team by some, opens its season against the New York Giants at AT&T Stadium.
It's an NFC East showdown. Mwuhahaha.
Strait will serve as an honorary captain for the coin toss prior to kickoff.
This will make Strait's second visit to the home of the Cowboys, having performed there in 2009 as part of the first-ever event held at the venue.
The following day, Monday, September 9, Strait is expected to hold a press conference from the stadium regarding his 2014 The Cowboy Rides Away Tour. The press conference will be streamed live at GeorgeStrait.com or on YouTube.com/georgestrait, or by following @georgestrait on twitter beginning at 11AM CT.
Will you tune into the game and the press conference? Are you a fan of Love Is Everything?
