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 Manager Erv Woolsey's address which is 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.

Notes from Linda:
»DVDs of the George Strait Team Roping Classic are available for purchase from RodeoVideo.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 in 2015 during which he will complete his next album. So, be assured, the best is yet to come from George Strait.
» NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The quintessential country music troubadour George Strait released his brand new single, “Let It Go,” to country radio April 20. “Let It Go” is the first new music released by Strait since his No. 1-debuting 2013 album, Love Is Everything, and is the first new music since Strait returned to the studio following his historic, two-year The Cowboy Rides Away Tour.
Written by George Strait, Bubba Strait and Keith Gattis, “Let It Go” is the laid-back lead single off Strait’s upcoming studio album on longtime label home, MCA Records Nashville. WYCD’s Tim Roberts calls the song “another pure country hit for radio and for real country fans.”
» The “King of Country” performed his new single on the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards. Strait has won 21 ACM Awards over four consecutive decades.
George Strait, among others, was honored with the prestigious 50th Anniversary Milestone Award commemorating their groundbreaking career achievements in ACM Awards history. The seven honorees each received an exclusive trophy created by renowned jewelry and timepiece designer, David Yurman, during the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Sunday, April 19, 2015
The Academy of Country Music 50th Anniversary Milestone Award recognizes artists that have advanced the popularity and acceptance of country music by accomplishing milestones unique to the Academy of Country Music, voted on by the ACM Board of Directors.
Strait, the king of country music, has a remarkable career earning a total of twenty-one (21) ACM Awards spanning the course of four consecutive decades. Having won his first ACM Entertainer accolade for 1989, Strait’s 2013 win in the category gave him the largest span, 24 years, between Entertainer wins in Academy history. He also received the 40th Anniversary Milestone Award in 2005, five (5) Male Vocalist of the Year Awards, and was honored as the ACM Dick Clark Artist of the Decade for the 2000s, being only one of five acts to have received the honor.
» George released the Arlington Texas concert in a DVD which is better than the CD because it has 40 songs, all but one song from the concert! ('Folsum' was not included, as the guest artists erred on the lyrics.) This DVD is a must have for a George Strait fan. George was emotional, and at the top of his game, in fine voice. The Ace in the Hole Band gave a tremendous performance, as always.
