Strait Named 2017 Texas State Musician

The Texas State Legislature will honor George Strait with their top honor as 2017's State Musician tomorrow (5/18) in Austin. The general public nominates candidates, and then recipients are selected from those nominees by the Texas Commission on the Arts through several committee processes. "It's a great honor for me to be selected as Texas State Musician of 2017 and join this very prestigious list of other honorees," says Strait. "I'm a very proud Texan and love to sing the praises of our great state every chance I get. Thank you very, very much."
