Here's an extract from Wikipedia:

George Harvey Strait (born May 18, 1952) is an American country music singer, actor, and music producer. Strait is referred to as the "King of Country" and has been called a living legend by some critics. He is known for his neotraditionalist country style.

Strait rocketed to success after his first single "Unwound" was a hit in 1981. While contributing to the neo-traditional movement of the 1980s, he amassed seven number one albums in the decade with his most popular hits including "Fool Hearted Memory" and "Ocean Front Property". By the 1990s, Strait had influenced a new breed of performers while continuing his own successes, having charted upwards of 20 number-one hits including "Heartland" and "Blue Clear Sky". In the 2000s, Strait was named Artist of the Decade by the Academy of Country Music, was elected into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and won his first Grammy award for his hit album Troubadour. Strait continued his previous successes throughout the decade, producing a more contemporary sound with moderate cross-over hits including "She'll Leave You with a Smile" and "You'll Be There".

Strait was named CMA Entertainer of the Year in 1989 and 1990, and ACM Entertainer of the Year in 1990. He has been nominated for more CMA and ACM awards and has more wins in both categories than any other artist. As of 2013, he holds the record for the most number-one hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts with 60 number one singles. Counting all other music charts, Strait has amassed a total of 60 number-one hits overall, breaking a record previously set by Conway Twitty.

Strait has sold more than 70 million albums in the United States and his certifications from the RIAA include 13 multi-platinum, 33 platinum, and 38 gold albums. His best-selling album is Pure Country (1992), which sold 6 million (6× platinum). His highest certified album is Strait Out of the Box (1995), which sold 2 million copies (8× Platinum due to being a box set with four CDs). According to the RIAA, Strait is the 12th best-selling album recording artist in the United States overall.

And his home town is San Antonio Texas.

Kager, how old are you? doesn't get any bigger than George. He's been a country music icon for over 3 decades.

It looks like Kager is from Australia. I doubt George is that big over there... just saying.

As they say birds of a feather flock together. It makes perfect sense that one great talent would support another. Time for another title!!!!!!
