Okay, so he’s an honorary doctor, so what?!
In 1979, Strait graduated from Texas State with a degree in agriculture, but many years later, the university presented him with an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters.
University president Denise M. Trauth presented him with the incredible honor.
“George Strait is the most famous and successful country music singer in the world,” she said. “He has had more Number One hits than any singer of any kind in history. And he’s our most prominent living graduate. The university is delighted to be able to honor him in this way.”
“We present honorary degrees only to individuals who have reached extraordinary levels of achievement,” said Kent Adams, chairman of the Board of Regents of the Texas State University System, who also called Strait a “living legend”.
He might be an honorary doctor, but he is an actual “Troubadour”.
