Congratulations to the King of Country! George Strait has been named the 2018 Texan of the Year by the Texas Legislative Conference. Strait will be presented the award at the New Braunfels Civic/Convention Center March 22. “No one has done more than George Strait to raise awareness and funds for the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts,” says Conference Chair and former Texas State Representative Doug Miller. “He put his well-earned reputation on the line and asked not only his fellow Texans to step up, but all Americans. And they have.” To date, Strait’s efforts on behalf of Hurricane Harvey victims have raised more than $50 million. More info here.
