You know the best part of George Strait’s retirement? He didn’t really retire. Sure, he’s not doing the big mega tours that he’s done in the past, the all-day music festivals that included country’s hottest like Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and his pal Alan Jackson, but he is still treating fans to shows in Las Vegas a few times a year.
One of those shows is coming up in April. “Strait to Vegas” features the King of Country performing his 60 biggest hits in a two-day time period. And since April is still a long way away, George and the country music community are pre-gaming with a special series of videos that will feature country stars, songwriters and celebrities talking about their favorite George songs.
Kacey Musgraves is kicking thing off chatting about her favorite Strait song—the 2003 chart topper “She’ll Leave You With a Smile.”
We can’t wait to see who else appears in these fun videos, what songs they pick and what they have to say about them. With 60 No. 1 hits (Billboard and MediaBase charts), there sure are enough songs to choose a favorite from, but what 60 different celebrities are going to speak up. Follow George on his Facebook page to find out!
Well…we aren’t celebrities, but here’s one of our picks of a favorite George Strait No. 1…performed by the King himself.
