With a twangy mix that includes traditional country, honky-tonk, and western swing, George Strait cuts across generational divides. Since his 1981 debut, the Texas troubadour has sold more than 60 million records, checking in as country music's No. 1 singles artist. His popular live sets include new hits, old faves, and cover songs. But flashy showmanship ain't Strait's thing. You won't see any rope-swinging onstage, and there's not a whole lot of banter from the reserved singer. But considering the sheer number of chart-toppers at his disposal, that's probably a good thing.
