Listen to George Strait on iHeartRadio

George Strait is becoming another type of cowboy.  The country star will take the field at AT&T Stadium to act as the Dallas Cowboys' honorary captain for the coin toss prior to the team's home opener against the New York Giants this weekend. 

The game will be carried on NBC's "Sunday Night Football" starting at 8:20 p.m. Eastern.  George will then return to the venue on Monday to announce the dates for his upcoming tour. 

The 2014 edition of his "Cowboy Rides Away" trek will formally cap off the King of Country's touring career.  Fans will be able to watch Strait's press conference live online.  The media event will be streamed at and starting at noon Eastern time.
