Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Sheryl Crow and Miranda Lambert will be among the country superstars who will take the stage with George Strait at his final show in Texas next summer.

The newly-crowned Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year will bow out of touring after one last show on his ongoing The Cowboy Rides Away trek – and his last hurrah will be a star-studded one.

Strait will take the stage at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington on June 7, and his famous friends will join him for three songs each.

As well as the aforementioned quartet, Strait will be joined by Eric Church, Ronnie Dunn, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Martina McBride and Lee Ann Womack, according to Country Weekly magazine.
