George Strait, Reba McEntire and Lee Ann Womack Keep It Country In Memphis

George Strait performs at the 43rd Annual CMA Awards in Nashville
If you're a fan of traditional country music, then the George Strait, Reba McEntire and Lee Ann Womack concert in Memphis on Thursday night was the place to be. According to CMT.com, "Approaching the four-hour mark at George Strait's Thursday night concert (March 4) at Memphis' FedEx Forum, I kept thinking, "This is where 'The Cowboy Rides Away' will bring down the house and bring up the lights."

After all, he'd already played "Amarillo by Morning" and about 20 other tunes. But Strait was in no hurry, going on to deliver "I Saw God Today," "Give It Away," "River of Love," "Living for the Night" (apparently true), "Troubadour" and his first-ever hit, "Unwound." Then he came back for a three-song encore.

Thus, fans of traditional country music got their fix when he wrapped after an hour and 45 minutes, while Reba McEntire had already offered about 80 minutes of hits and Lee Ann Womack graced the stage with a brief but engaging 30-minute set. (Strait called them "two of the greatest country performers ever.") It was just before 11:30 p.m. when the balconies emptied out, yet Strait stayed onstage to personally greet the folks who had floor seats. At that late hour, if you headed west on I-40 right after the show, you really could have made Amarillo by morning." ...continue reading on CMT.com.
