It’s a sell out crowd at Los Angeles’ Staples Center for the reigning “King of Country” George Strait.  The singer’s upcoming show there on February 8th sold out within nine minutes of going on sale Friday.  It’s the first date of the last leg of Strait’s two-year farewell tour to go on sale.

George Strait admits he has little to complain about in his career. But the country star says the one thing he wishes he’d done differently was write more of his music.
Strait explains that he used to write “a lot,” but over time he “just kind of got away from it.” But George says he’s returned to the craft, and is really enjoying it. The singer adds that he’s been having a lot of fun collaborating with his son and other talented songwriters.  Strait penned one song and co-wrote three others on his most recent album, “Love Is Everything,” including his latest single, “I Believe.”  George recently announced, he’d inked a contract extension with MCA Nashville to produce five more albums for the label.
