George Strait is enjoying his retirement from touring. He told “Rolling Stone Country,” he’s keeping himself busy with golf and several other projects, including a series of concerts at T-Moble Arena in Las Vegas. Strait said the first year off the road felt a bit weird. He explained, “I’d been off for a year and then January rolled around where normally I would start going out. I’m going, ‘I’m kind of in a funky mood.’ And it took me a while to realize this is why. It’s been my life for 30 years and now it’s not the same.” Strait is also working on a new album. He says he’s starting to write for it. He hopes to write the entire album.
