Kenny Chesney played football in High School and College how about a NFL career. He lovesw to work out with NFL teams when he playes in their stadiums.

It was back in September that George Strait revealed his final two-year U.S. tour would be called "The Cowboy Rides Away Tour" with dates through 2014. Over the weekend, Strait played his final 2013 date in San Antonio, Texas to a packed house of over 73,086 fans at the Alamodome with special guests Martina McBride and Miranda Lambert - breaking his own attendance record previously set in 2010.
