George Strait, the "king of country," has announced his final farewell tour for 2013. The country music singer announced the news of his tour during a news conference at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum on Sept. 26.

The King of Country will play his last tour at the age of 60, which will kick off in 2013. He is scheduled to play 21 dates in 2013 and 20 in 2014. The farewell tour will be called "Cowboy Rides Away."

"I just don't want to go to the point where I show up and nobody else does, you know?" Strait said before the announcement, according to CBC News. "It's been great. I've been doing it for 30-some odd years and I've loved it.. It's just the hectic part about touring and traveling and bam bam bam bam. I just feel like it's time for me to try something else."

Strait's music career kicked off in 1981 with the release of his first single. Since then, he has had 59 number-one hit singles, which is the highest for any artist in history. He has received numerous awards throughout his career, including being named 2000s Artist of the Decade by the Academy of Country Music Awards.
