George Strait-Over 60 and Looking Good
It was the mid-80s, back before I had kids.
It's back when I thought it was perfectly normal, maybe even cool, to sleep outside with a bunch of strangers waiting in line to get really good concert tickets.
Just the year before, I had sat out in the freezing cold of February for 52 hours waiting in line for Alabama tickets.
This time it was George Strait.
I'll just tell you right now, it was all worth it!
I had managed to get front row tickets.
My sister-in-law and some of her friends were there too. I'll never forget watching my sister-in-law run her hand up the pants leg of George Strait in his tight starched Wranglers. She did it in a respectful manner, but her face was certainly full of lust.
They would only let you go up to the stage a few at a time. Eventually, they allowed the mob to swarm the stage. That's when I got the picture you see above. It's hard to believe that was around 30 years ago!
Still Cranking Out Number 1's!
He's still cranking out number one hits and looking so good doing it. He holds the record for the most #1s in any genre. Click here for a list.
One of my favorite George Strait songs is "Don't Make Me Come Over There and Love You". I was finally able to find a copy I could insert here. See the video below.
Another favorite is "The Seashores of Old Mexico". There is something so sexy about seeing a fully dressed cowboy sitting on a beach singing barefooted.
Of course, my all-time favorite George Strait song is "Amarillo by Morning". I love the fiddle-playing and steel guitar in this song.
