“Make some noise for the sexiness of George Strait’s music.”
Jamie Foxx is a jack of all trades. Actor, comedian, singer, songwriter, producer, and BIG George Strait guy.
Back in 2009, CBS hosted a tribute concert for the King of Country Music, featuring performances from Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley and more, but it was Jamie’s soulful performance of “You Look So Good In Love” that left people in awe.
Before kicking off the performance, Jamie shared a hilarious, yet heartwarming intro about growing up in Texas as a young, black, George Strait fan.
“Black fans too, George; you got black fans too,” he laughed. “I’m from a good old town called Terrell, Texas. . . . You came to Terrell, Texas, one time when I was 14 years old, and I told everybody, I don’t care what side of the tracks I gotta go over, I’m going on the other side of the tracks to see George Strait.’ I took a big risk that night.”
