The King of Country Music

George Strait. No matter what kind of music you prefer, you'd be hard pressed not to know that name. He's a legend and without a doubt the King of Country music. He's also finishing up his very last tour ever - The Cowboy Rides Away Tour

I can remember as a kid listening to George non stop when I was with my Grandma; that was her man y'all. She'd tell me that all the time and I'd argue her to the floor. I was going to marry Mr. Strait one day, I was sure of it. When I went to college at Southwest Texas State (Texas State University - San Marcos) I learned that George Strait was also a student there back in the day. I thought was the coolest thing ever. Plus, I was hanging out at the bars that he used to play in - how freaking cool?! Hey, I thought it was cool. 

So, this is his last tour, but luckily he plans to still record new music (Praise the music Gods above!) and even luckier - we're headed to Baton Rouge right now to see one of his last shows. I'm ecstatic. I bought these darn tickets last year! We've been waiting patiently and finally the time has come.

So, to celebrate, Chris and I decided we'd share with y'all our top 10 favorite George Strait songs, in no particular order. If you are a fan of his music, you'll understand how excruciating it was to narrow down his hits to a top ten list! I've linked them all up for your listening pleasure! Enjoy y'all!
