Amy’s Featured Artist of The WeeK – George Strait

One of George Strait's best selling albums 'Pure Country,' led to the big-screen debut of 'King' George. The movie is a familiar tale of a star returning to his roots. Strait plays Dusty Chandler, one of the hottest performers in country music. Dusty feels that his elaborate stage show is overwhelming his music, a suspicion confirmed one night when he forgets several bars of a chart-topping hit and his fans don't even notice. Disillusioned, Dusty tells his manager Lula (Lesley Ann Warren) and best buddy Earl (John Doe) that he's taking a break.

Amy’s Featured Artist of The Week – George Strait

As we continue with our tribute to George Strait, I though I would start from the beginning. George Strait was born on May 18, 1952, in Poteet, Texas, the son of a junior high school teacher who also owned and operated a ranch that had been in the Strait family for nearly 100 years. When Strait was a child, his mother left the family, taking her daughter but leaving behind her sons with the father. During his childhood, he would spend his weekdays in town and his weekends on the ranch. Strait began playing music as a teenager, joining a rock 'n' roll garage band.

Amy’s Featured Artist of The Week – George Strait [VIDEOS]

I am a sucker for George Strait's early work! It makes sense, I'm a product of the 80's so I have my favorites from that decade! In 1984 George released the platinum album 'Right or Wrong,' which gave us the hits, 'Let's Fall To Pieces,' and 'You Look So Good In Love.' In 1986 I fell in love with 'Number 7.' This was actually his 7th MCA album. 'Nobody In His Right Mind' and 'It Ain't Cool To Be Crazy About You,' went #1 and King George won his second CMA Male Vocalist of The Year . I was still a 'baby' in the radio business back then! What a thrill to get to spin George Strait on the airwaves!
