If you’ve ever doubted the impact that George Strait has had on the music industry, you may be surprised to learn that a cover of one of King George’s biggest hits helped a Mongolian electrician become a star.
In 2016, 20-year old O.Enkh-Erdene wowed the audience and judges during the opening round of Mongolia’s Got Talent with his take on the country classic “Amarillo By Morning.”
The singer, who doesn’t speak English, pulled of a flawless cover of the 1983 George Strait hit, but left many wondering if he understood what he was singing about. His accent skewed some of the lyrics, but his jaw-dropping voice shined through. In fact, the talented vocalist went on to win the 2nd season of the popular competition show.
