Strait Fever ~ This website was first created and established on AOL in 1992. I am a career long George Strait fan, and I am proud to have the oldest George Strait site on the Internet. I had the AOL Chatroom called "Strait Stuff," then started a Straitfever group in "Yahoo Groups." I moved the group concept to Face Book Groups under "George Strait Fever," feeling it was more user friendly, and a better place to share George photos, videos, reviews, news, and personal Strait stories.
Please note: This is not George's website. Please do not write me with requests. I feel for your causes, and understand your feelings towards George however I am not employed by George, and I cannot help you. Write to George or the Ace in the Hole Band using the George Strait Fan Club address, or Manager Erv Woolsey's address. Both addresses are on every George Strait CD/DVD.
Currently has 60 #1 hits in a single chart format, more than any other recording artist - including all genres of music. He has sold close to 70 million records, garnering him 33 different platinum or multi-platinum albums resulting in the most RIAA platinum certification in country music,
and the third in all genres, behind only
The Beatles and Elvis Presley.
With currently 85 top ten hits George is the first act to hit the top 10 on Billboard for 32 straight years.

ARTIST OF A LIFETIME
Notes from Linda:
»A DVD of the 2014 George Strait Team Roping Classic is now avilable for purchase from GeorgeStrait.com
»George has reminded his fans during his two year tour that although he will no longer be touring, he is by no means "gone." He signed with MCA for five more albums of Strait music in the years ahead. George says he is looking forward to more time for writing, and will select, and choose his appearances after a year off during which he will complete his next album. So, be assured, the best is yet to come from George Strait.
»CMA ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR GEORGE STRAIT RECEIVED UNPARALLELED 83RD CMA AWARD NOMINATION
Reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year George Strait made his 24th career performance on the “The 48th Annual CMA Awards” – more than any other artist in CMA Awards history – Wednesday, Nov. 5.
Strait entered the coveted field of Entertainer of the Year nominees again in 2014 and retains his status as the most nominated artist in CMA Awards history with 83. Strait has a total of 19 nominations and three trophies just for Entertainer of the Year (1989, 1990, 2013). Strait was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006, which is determined by CMA’s Panel of Electors. Earlier this year, Strait retired from touring, but not from making music that touches millions of fans.
»GEORGE STRAIT WAS AT COWBOY'S DANCEHALL the evening of October 7th to stand with his long time "Cowboys Like Us" motorcycle buddies. All of them were presented with the Soaring Eagle award in recognition of "For The Love Of Kids And Harleys."
It’s the 20th anniversary of the benefit, which has raised more than $3 million for children’s charities in Bexar and Comal counties, San Antonio Texas. Strait, a longtime guest auctioneer for the event, is being honored alongside his friends who created the charity.
Two people left the event with new Harley-Davidson motorcyles, as one was auctioned off and the other was given away in a raffle. This year’s proceeds went to Easter Seals, St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, and S.A. Sports Foundation.
The entertainment included the great Texas Jamm Band (which is headed by members of Strait’s Ace in the Hole band), and the Randy Rogers Band. King George heard the Texas Jamm Band from backstage, and was compelled to join them. He treated fans to "Amarillo By Morning," and "Troubadour" before starting his portion of the auction. A good time was had by all as George reminded us that we were there to raise money for the kids.
George released the Arlington concert from June as a Deluxe Edition CD + DVD. To purchase a special package click below.
