George Strait has had one of the longest and most beloved careers of any country star, but even he says he has a career regret.

George says that if he had to choose a regret, ”It would be that I kind of quit writing for years. Because starting out I loved to write and wrote a lot and then I just kind of got away from it.” As his career progressed, George came to rely on great songs from other writers in Nashville but he says, “Now I’m getting back into it more and I’m enjoying that a lot. I’m writing with my son and other writers, so it’s a lot of fun.”

George recently signed a deal to record five more albums for MCA Nashville and he says he plans to do a lot of writing for those projects. George also just announced the final dates for The Cowboy Rides Away Tour, the final tour of his career, which will kick off in January 2014.
