George Strait set a new record for indoor concert attendance in North America Saturday night when 104,793 fans saw him perform at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the final stop on his The Cowboy Rides Away tour.

The old record was set in 1981 when The Rolling Stones performed for 87,500 fans at the New Orleans Superdome.

George performed some 40 songs, during his three-hour concert, which featured a number of special guests, including Vince Gill , Jason Aldean , Eric Church , Sheryl Crow , Martina McBride , Faith Hill , Alan Jackson , Miranda Lambert , and Kenny Chesney .

During a break in the performances, George presented a million-dollar home in the Dallas area to Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Arthur Petry and his wife, Ashley .  Sgt. Petry is a Medal of Honor recipient. The home was presented in partnership with the Military Warriors Support Foundation’s “Homes 4 Wounded Heroes” initiative.

All the musical guests joined George for an encore that included "All My Ex’s Live in Texas,” "Folsom Prison Blues" and "The Cowboy Rides Away."
