Harvey, George Strait‘s grandson, got up on stage and sang a duet with his beloved grandfather. The performance of ‘God and Country Music’ was definitely one for the books!
The Record Breaking Performance
Strait definitely outdid himself during his closing performance on the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. With a whopping 80,108 fans in attendance for the performance at NRG Stadium, Strait had surpassed the venue’s previous record of the stadium, which was 80,020. This was also a record that was set by the King of Country in 2013.
The Sweetest “God and Country Music” Duet
Strait’s Houston Rodeo-closing performance on Sunday night, the 17th of March, was indeed special. His grandson, Harvey Strait, jumped on stage to help perform ‘God and Country Music.’
The crowd gave the 6-year-old a hearty welcome as his grandfather proudly introduced him. Elder Strait was enthusiastic in introducing him to sing the song with him.
The sweetest country duo performed ‘God and Country Music,’ a track that appears on Strait’s new album Honky Tonk Time Machine. It drops on the 29th of March.
The album features 13 songs – 12 of them are originals and a cover of Johnny Paycheck’s “Old Violin.” Strait co-penned eight of those tracks, including a much-awaited duet with Willie Nelson entitled “Sing One With Willie.”
