After announcing his final tour, George Strait seems to be having some second thoughts about ‘calling it quits for good!’ There have been plenty of other legendary artists who have gone on a ‘farewell tour’ and then years later, come back to perform once again. I cannot imagine being a performer my whole life, and then NEVER go onstage again. I think a lot of people struggle with the whole retirement itself, not just artists like King George! Check out what George Straight is saying now, just to “set the record Strait!”

King George says:

“It wasn’t an easy decision to make. I’ve lost a lot of sleep over it, but I feel like I’m not really retiring. I’m just not going to tour. One point I want to get across to everybody is that I’m still going to make records and I may still do some events. It’s not the last time I’m onstage. It’s been a part of my life for too long to quit everything. I have done it since the ’80s, and I think it’s time now to maybe see if I can live without that part.”

This makes total sense to me too! He can say goodbye to doing annual or regular concert tours without saying that he will NEVER perform again! And this is GREAT news for all the fans like me, who hope to still see him onstage from time to time, while he enjoys a more ‘retirement like’ lifestyle!

Do you think that you will ever be able to ‘retire’ completely, and never work again?
