The Undisputed King Of Country
With his stetson tilted over his sparkling eyes at a rakish angle, George Strait positively exudes the kind of charisma associated with the consummate performers of old. Shying away from gimmicks and trends, Strait rose to prominence in the 1980s thanks to his knack for fusing honky tonk and western swing with his undeniable charm, revitalising the 'straight ahead country' genre in the process.
Imbuing every performance with a warmth and veteran sense of clam and cool, Strait is the undisputed "King of Country Music' with a three decade career filled 33 platinum certified records and so many no. 1 hit singles (a whopping 60) he's earned more than an artist in any other genre behind Elvis and The Beatles. There are no bells and whistles when Strait takes to the stage, just good old fashioned country music and a lasting legacy that would make the auto-tune reliant performers of today quake in their cowboy boots. Having "retired" from touring in 2014, a chance to Strait live is a rare bird indeed!
