Biography

Paying homage to the King of Country music, George Strait, is a matter of passion for the six gentlemen in Strait Texas.  It's out of respect for the genre of country music and the musicianship that is required to faithfully reproduce some of the most well known and beloved songs that this show was born.  The hardest part of putting together a two hour casino show was choosing which of Strait's sixty Number 1's and over 100 charting singles the band would perform on any given night.  To help with the song choices, the band went through 4 decades of set lists from concerts from the King himself to recreate the feel and spirit of George Strait live.

George Strait doesn't play live much anymore, and although he's continuing his residency in T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas, he maintains less then 20 dates per year. The King of Country music continues his American reign from a throne in Nevada, although fans throughout Texas, the U.S., Mexico, and even up into Canada have made the trek to pay homage to the man. Completing touring in 2014 with his final show taking place in Arlington, Texas, Strait began this last round of his current Vegas show schedule.

Strait Texas is bringing a retrospective show of George Strait's entire career to casino's, fairs and festivals across North America to respectfully fill the void that is left for fans of the greatest country singer of all time and to celebrate his entire catalogue of fantastic music.
