Despite having been on the road wowing fans for over 30 years, King George has still got it. 

On Friday night, Strait made what may very well be his last tour stop ever in Omaha, Nebraska and ended up breaking the CenturyLink Center's attendance record by packing 17,486 fans into the arena.

The previous record of 17,206 concert-goers was set by, you guessed it, George Strait.

“When I first set out on the road, I thought I'd be lucky to do it five years. Well, it's been 30 years, and I still love it,” Strait said from the stage. “I'm not retiring though. I'm not quitting. I'll be back, just not so often," Strait told the crowd. 

And if he does come back, I'm pretty sure he'll probably break his own record again.

Strait is currently on his Cowboy Rides Away Tour. You can check tour dates over on Strait's website, although I have a feeling tickets will be hard to come by if that's what you're wanting to look for.
