Back in June, country music icon George Strait drew a crowd of over 100,000 people for the final concert of his farewell tour in Arlington, Texas. It's no surprise, then, that a big chunk of those tickets were picked up on StubHub, the online ticket seller, which now says Strait's show at AT&T Stadium helped make him its No. 2 artist of the year.
StubHub's top-selling act of 2014? That would be those dream-boats in One Direction, followed by Strait and another country star Luke Bryan. StubHub rep Glen Lehrman said more tickets were sold for Strait's last show than the next two largest events in 2014 (concerts by Bryan and Justin Timberlake).
