Before he made it, back in the early 1970s, we met Mr. Strait singing in a small Ft. Lauderdale honky tonk. His set just ended, it was very late,(or early), around 4am. And the man was still gracious and kind. He shook our nakmds and spoke with my ex late husband, who was a well known musician about town back then.
Some things you never forget- like how we heard Amarillo By Morning not too long after that night and realized that was the George Strait we'd met.

That should have read: He shook our hands and spoke with my late ex husband.

I had the pleasure of being the housekeeper for him many years ago in Nashville. George Strait and his wife are two of the nicest, most down-to-earth people you could ever possibly meet.

Thank God Nashville got it right this time instead of naming some no talent like Faith Hill or Tim Mgraw. Long Live King George!

talent is in the ear of the beholder. George Strait is great! but Tim and Faith are more of the new country singers. they are all good, it just depends on what you like in country!

Faith Hill was fantastic on her first few albums. Unfortunately, in my opinion, when she had to have surgery on her vocal chords, she lost her country flavor for me. She's been more pop than country since then.

As for Tim McGraw, he's a talented individual. Sings well and he knows how to perform, which is different than singing.

Country, as in any type of music, has it's own phases and everyone has their own taste. New country has it's place and so does the easy going style that George Strait performs so well.

Let's just be glad he's being honored so highly. He deserves it.

EXCUSE ME EVERYONE, but I am pissed off at George Straight and the people associated with this show.

As I was watching the show tonight, I was shocked when I saw Jamie Foxx walk out on stage. Why would George Straight allow a man that had just attacked a 16 year old girl on a show honoring him?

Jamie Foxx attacked Miley Cyrus, he called her all kinds of names, made fun of the way she looked, one in his group called her a white bitch and he allows this man to honor him?

I think George Straight and any person associated with this show owes Billy Ray and Miley an apology. When did it become ok for a grown man to trash the 16 year old daughter of a fellow country singer and then get invited on a show honoring one of country music's biggest stars?
