In a concert that spanned 9-and-a-half hours, Strait was joined in Ames by Asleep at the Wheel, Mark Wills, Jo Dee Messina, the Dixie Chicks, Kenny Chesney, and Tim McGraw. You talk about an incredible lineup! 25 years and one day later, George Strait is returning to Jack Trice Stadium.

PICTURES: Look Inside George Strait's Spectacular Mansion

George Strait has sold his one-of-a-kind mansion in Texas, and it was actually a real deal. The country legend asked $6.9 million for his 7,925-square-foot home that includes three bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half-baths on a hilltop in a very exclusive area of San Antonio. The final selling price was not disclosed.

The house sits on 12.2 acres and includes a gourmet kitchen, separate his and her bathrooms and closets and 14 hand-sculpted masonry fireplaces. The main house is wired for surround sound throughout, and it also features outdoor living spaces including a patio with built-in grill, sink, icemaker and refrigerator. There's also an infinity pool/spa and a sports court, a workout room with a private bathroom and sauna, and a walk-in safe room.
