George Strait Biography

George Strait (George Harvey Strait) is an American singer-songwriter and producer born on 18th May 1952 in  Poteet, Texas. He has had 60 No. 1 singles and is the only act in history to have a top 10 hit every year over three decades. In 2006 he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Strait is also known for his touring career, he designed a 360- degree configuration and introduced festival style tours. The Strait tours earned him $99 million in three years. In June 2014 his AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas concert drew 104,793 people, marking a new record for the largest indoor concert in North America.

In the 1970s during his college years, Strait joined Stoney Ridge, a country band who at the time was looking for a vocalist. He renamed the group ‘Ace in the Hole Band’ and soon enough became the lead. The band performed at different honky-tonks and bars around South and Central Texas, traveling as far east as Huntsville and Houston.

The band recorded several Strait-penned singles including “That Don’t Change The Way I Feel About You,” and “I Can’t Go On Dying Like This” for the Houston-based D label. However, the songs never achieved wide recognition, and Strait continued to manage his family cattle ranch during the day in order to make some extra cash.

In February 1981 Strait signed a recording contract with MCA. The initial deal was for one song. If the single did well, the label would then consider doing an album. The Ace in the Hole band remained with Strait, performing as the backup and touring band for the now solo act.

In the spring of 1981, he released his first single ‘Unwound’ which reached to #6 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart that year and was included on his debut album Strait Country.
