Born in Poteet, Texas, George’s ACM nominations for his career now totals to 70. Strait has acted in two feature films. He had a bit part in The Soldier (1982) and starred in Pure Country (1992). He also appeared as himself in The Horse Whisperer (1998) and Grand Champion (2002).
Watch some Youtube covers of George’s hits below!

Now, here’s a cover from someone you may recognize.

I can’t tell you how many people that call into the station and say “Baby Boy, what was that new George Strait song you just played?” Only to hear me tell that who they just heard was Easton Corbin. It is incredibly hard to distinguish the two.

Oh and here’s a funny picture I found of him

    Oh how i love it when photography catches artist’s weird facial expressions while they sing. On behalf of everyone here at 99.5 WKDQ, We LOVE you George, and we know just because your 59 doesn’t mean you’re quitting anytime soon.
