Tailgating George Strait's "Cowboy Rides Away" Finale at AT&T Stadium

"To King George!" That toast is about all that needs to be said about the atmosphere at AT&T Stadium over the weekend when country legend George Strait arrived to wrap up his last-ever concert tour. It was a suitably grand sendoff, too, with more than 100,000 people attending -- a record for any indoor concert, ever.

Of course, half the fun of going was in the party surrounding the show. Rather than being a solemn occasion, it was a day for thousands upon thousands of people to come together for their love of King George. The Observer was there, video camera in tow, to let some of those fans share their reminiscences.

Our video, by Sarah Passon, captures an appropriate snapshot of those who made the trek for this historic event. Some came from right here in Dallas, some all the way from Canada. (And they had plenty to say about the "culture shock.") As has been a common theme, some recalled Strait being their first concert. Others just sang "All My Exes Live in Texas." But they all had a toast of their own for the King.
