For George Strait's 61st birthday tons of talented country music artists came together to show their support for the country music legend and his '60 for 60' campaign.
For his birthday, George scored his 60th number one single - that has to be the best gift, ever! To celebrate his accomplishments, country artists came together to say 'happy birthday' to the King of Country and to tell stories of their favorite memories with George. Legendary artists like Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, and basically anyone you could think of, all had something amazing to say to George, most ending with "ou are my greatest inspiration".
Everyone's message was heartfelt, but Vince Gill's was especially touching. He opened his message with a funny little comment, "60?! That's freakish my friend!". He remembers meeting George in 1982 when his career was just getting started, and he said after watching his performance he thought, "There goes a cowboy that can sing right there." Vince tells us that his personal George Strait favorites are "Amarillo By Morning" and "Troubadour".
It's clear that Vince looks up to George, and is so grateful to call him a friend. He ends with, "60 for 60 buddy, we're all pulling for ya". What a true friend, and a great supporter.
In the video below we have the two singing "Love Bug" together at The Cowboy Rides Away Special!
