[NEW COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN] It's not that George Strait hasn't earned the right to schedule an extended victory lap—60 No. 1 hits don't come along too often—but farewell tours have long been a showboating stratagem for chairmen of the board (Frank Sinatra, Jay-Z) dimly aware of a looming irrelevance. Strait's decent-hat-ginormous-cattle career has always avoided the pyrotechnics, metaphorical or stage-incinerating, that made his only true rival, Garth Brooks, such a polarizing presence. Though Strait's reign as King of Country has seen that sleepy niche transformed toward platform-conquering pop-tastic empire, his overstuffed songbook never drifted unrecognizably from honky-tonk traditions, and his maintenance of a thoroughly old-fashioned private life means we might never know the reasons behind this final round-up. Opener Chris Young, past winner of USA Network's Nashville Star competition and "Aw Naw" recording artist, serves as a damning testament to all we've lost.
