George Strait is known as the King of country, but now he has a new title -- Texan of the Year.
On Friday, George accepted the honor at the Texas Legislative Conference in New Braunfels, Texas. He was recognized for his many contributions to the Lone Star State, particularly within the last year, when he took the lead in recovery efforts following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.
He accepted the award in person, saying, "I’m so proud to have grown up in the great state of Texas and so proud to be here today to accept this unbelievable honor. Texas is a big place filled with amazingly talented, smart people. How’d I end up up here?"
I have always been a big fan of George Strait his music has always been some of my favorite tunes.
Let's take a trip down the Kings memory lane with some of my favorite George Songs.
