Observer Staff Report | Friday, February 21, 2020
Singer and songwriter George Strait will perform at Notre Dame Stadium on Aug. 15, the University announced in a press release Friday.
Though the artist — whom the release referred to as the “King of Country” — no longer tours, he occasionally performs in certain cities. Recently, Strait played in Wichita and Kansas City.
The release said Strait is a highly decorated artist.
“With an unmatched 60 singles hitting the top of the charts — more than any other artist in any genre — during the span of his 30-plus-year career, Strait has collected 33 platinum- or multi-platinum-selling albums, more than any country artist and ranking third across all genres behind The Beatles and Elvis Presley,” the release said.
According to the release, Strait has sold close to 70 million albums and won upwards of 60 “major” awards. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.
