ARLINGTON  (AP) — Known for his easygoing manner and everyman's appeal, country music legend George Strait strolled from the floor of the Dallas Cowboys' lavish stadium onto the custom-built stage Saturday night in a blue plaid shirt, Wrangler jeans, a silver belt buckle and a black cowboy hat, facing the largest crowd for an indoor concert in North American history.

About 105,000 people packed in for the last concert of Strait's final tour —exceeding the stadium's official capacity by 5,000— and shattering the previous record set by The Rolling Stones at The Louisiana Superdome in 1981.
