Eric Church and Kenny Chesney are among the guests taking part in George Strait's tour finale.  Eric says he's honored to be included, but admits it's not really a joyous occasion. 

Chesney says Strait has been a hero, a friend, and an inspiration to him.  He adds that he's learned many things from George, including the power of a great song.  Kenny explains that Strait's music will "never go out of style" because his songs "touch people's lives." 

Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, and Martina McBride are also on board for Strait's tour finale, along with Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Faith Hill, and Sheryl Crow.  Each guest is slated to take the stage for three songs.  The last concert of Strait's "Cowboy Rides Away" tour is set for AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Saturday.
