Country music icon George Strait is rooting on the Dallas Cowboys today as they face their division rival the Washington Football Team.

Strait sent out a tweet before the game, hoping too see a Cowboys win.

“It’s #GameDay! Who’s ready to see the @dallascowboys win today?” Strait tweeted with a picture of him standing in AT&T Stadium.

The country music star has a history of supporting the Cowboys and performing at AT&T Stadium. He performed there in 2009 in the first event ever performed at the stadium.

Furthermore, the Cowboys had Strait serve as an honorary captain for the coin toss prior to their season opener against the New York Giants in 2013.

Strait’s final concert of his career was also held at AT&T Stadium in 2014. It quickly became the largest indoor concert in North America as 104,793 people crammed into AT&T Stadium. It broke a 33-year record previously set by The Rolling Stones in New Orleans in 1981. An estimated crowd of 87,500 people attended that concert at the Superdome.

Just a few months later, Strait released a new live album, “The Cowboy Rides Away: Live from AT&T Stadium.” The album captures the historic last performance on his farewell tour.

Similarly, the album was recorded at AT&T Stadium. More than 10 musical guests make appearances throughout, including Eric Church, Vince Gill, Sheryl Crow, Miranda Lambert and Faith Hill. Strait’s son, George “Bubba” Strait, Jr., also joins his dad for a performance of Bubba’s own tune, “Arkansas Dave.”

The farewell album also includes an encore performance of “All My Ex’s Live in Texas,” performed as a group singalong with all of album’s guest stars. Each singer takes a turn at the mic, paying tribute to Strait, who remained at the top of his game throughout three and a half decades.

Just a few days ago, Strait gave off more Cowboy vibes in one of his latest Instagram posts.

“Always a Cowboy,” the post says.
