George Strait Receives Star-Studded Tribute
George Strait sure does have a laundry list of famous admirers. Faith Hill, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Sugarland, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban are just a few of the many artists set to perform at a special show honoring the King of Country.
'George Strait - ACM Artist of the Decade' will be filmed at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 6. The concert, sponsored by the Academy of Country Music, will pay tribute to Strait's illustrious, 25-year career. He is one of only five acts to receive the honor, following Marty Robbins (1969), Loretta Lynn (1979), Alabama (1988) and Garth Brooks (1998).
This is just one of a series of events leading up to the 44th Annual ACM Awards, which airs live from Las Vegas, April 5 at 8 PM ET on CBS.
