NEP’s Screenworks has just completed supporting production of George Strait: The Cowboy Rides Away, a two-hour live television concert special, which will premiere on CMT this Friday. The concert was produced and directed by Screenworks President, Danny O’Bryen, with Screenworks’ sister company, NEP’s Denali group, providing production facilities, equipment and technical support. 

The concert set an indoor attendance record with 104,000 people. The show was produced and recorded from Denali’s mobile production truck, Cobalt, and utilized 22 Sony cameras and 42 Ki Pro recorders, to capture all of the action on stage.

“This was a great opportunity for us - it allowed us to combine Screenworks’ experience supporting live concert events with Denali’s expertise in major, live, multi-camera entertainment events.” said Screenworks President Danny O’Bryen. “It was truly an honor to be part of such a historic event for such a legendary musician.”

This event was George Strait's final concert, shot exclusively to air on the CMT network. The concert included guest performances by Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Sheryl Crow, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, and Martina McBride. Filmed on June 7th in Dallas, Texas at AT&T Stadium the event will air as part of a two-hour special premiering Friday August 29th at 7:00 pm ET/PT.
