Notes from Linda:
»George is not far from completing his "Cowboy Rides Away tour," the final structured concert tour of his career, with the final concert being scheduled for Arlington/Dallas on June 7th. His fans are letting him know how beloved he is, and he is reacting. His concerts have been long, emotional, and George has been in no hurry to leave the stage after his encore. Reviews have been exceptional.
»Reviews and pictures from this tour will be posted on this Straitfever Website, on the "Cowboy Rides Away" link, page two, which should be relesed and on line sometime in April.
»I am continually updating "The Cowboy Rides Away" 2014 site, adding the second page/website, and I am in process of creating Page two, the continuing page to "The Man," segment. As long as George is making music I will continue to update my pages. I will publish the links when they are ready.
Strait Fever ~ This website was first created and established on AOL in 1992. I am a career long George Strait fan, and I am proud to have the oldest George Strait pages on the Web. I had the AOL Chatroom called "Strait Stuff," then started a Straitfever group in "Yahoo Groups." I moved the group concept to Face Book, feeling it was a better place to share George, and more user friendly. That has worked out wonderfully, and the Group is still growing. For photos, videos, reviews, the latest Strait news, personal Strait stories, and so much more join us at the George Strait Fever Facebook Group.
Please note: This is not George's website. Please do not write me with requests. I feel for your causes, and understand your feelings towards George however I am not employed by George, and I cannot help you. Write to George or the Ace in the Hole Band using the George Strait Fan Club address, or Manager Erv Woolsey's address. Both addresses are on every George Strait CD/DVD.
