George Strait’s Son Is A Talented Rodeo Cowboy and Songwriter

Meet George Strait's Son, Bubba Strait
by

George Strait’s son, Bubba Strait, is the very definition of the saying, “Like father, like son.” He grew up to be a fan of two things his dad loved the most – team roping and, of course, country music. Not only that, but Bubba also excelled in them. So it isn’t surprising that the country music icon is proud of him. Oh, and he also seems to have inherited his handsome looks from his father. 

Who is Bubba Strait?

Bubba Strait was born as George Harvey Strait Jr. on May 14, 1981. He is the second child and only son of the country music icon with his wife, Norma Strait. He attended university at Texas A&M, where he began his competitive rodeo career. Soon after graduating, he became a team roper of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). And this was something that he and his father bonded over. 

According to George Strait, it was the greatest feeling to watch his son roping or even just watch him compete just like he did in the 2006 Houston Livestock and Rodeo. He also added that he and Bubba had been lucky to win a couple of buckles together and that for him was the ultimate thing.

But aside from that, the father and son also share the same passion for songwriting. In fact, Bubba has around 30 song credits off of his father’s albums since 2009. He has worked alongside many of the biggest names in songwriting in the industry, including Dean Dillon. The two co-wrote “Living for the Night” with George Strait for the first single off of George’s hit 2009 album “Twang.” Bubba also collaborated for 2 more songs on the record and even wrote one himself entitled “Arkansas Dave.”

And he also performs occasionally on stage with his famous father, although it’s a very rare occurrence. Nevertheless, their performances never fail to ring in applause. 

What is he doing right now?

Currently, George Strait’s son Bubba and his wife Tamara, who is a successful realtor, are living at Texas Hill with their two children, Jillian Louise, and George Harvey Strait III. Though he may have had talent in songwriting, he never really pursued a music career like his father. But he still carries on, and hopefully, he would share more country music classics straight from the Strait family. And as for George Strait’s wife Norma and him, the two are still happily married and will soon celebrate 50 years of marriage.
