George Strait will finish off his two-year farewell tour in the biggest house in his home state of Texas -- the Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium.

The country superstar held a rare news conference Monday at the stadium to announce the last leg of his The Cowboy Rides Away tour. He announced he was retiring from the road last year but still plans to record, recently agreeing to a deal for five more studio albums.

Strait will take a who's who of country music on the road, including Merle Haggard, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Little Big Town and Ronnie Dunn.

"The first leg of the tour earlier this year was very fun, but also very emotional," Strait said at the press conference. "Every city and venue holds such great memories. I'm really looking forward to seeing our fans out on the road in 2014."

The 61-year-old singer kicks off Jan. 9 and plans stops in Nashville, Los Angeles, Chicago and Foxborough, Mass., the first of two stadium shows to end the tour.
