Rare Interview With George Strait From 1982 Claims He Can “Make A Cowgirl’s Jeans Twitch At 100 Yards”

George Strait country music

The year was 1982.

King George had a few singles under his belt, including his first number one, “Fool Hearted Memory,” and he was gearing up for a show at Son Valley in Victoria, Texas.

“Back when I was the 19-year-old associate producer for “The Weekend Journal” on Victoria, Texas’ tiny ABC affiliate KXIX-TV, one of the artists we interviewed was a fresh young country artist with a winning smile.

His name was George Strait, and ever since our show went “Strait” off the air in 1982, this footage has gone unseen.”

And the best part of the entire interview? When the host introduces him as the guy that can…

“supposedly make a cowgirl’s jeans twitch at 100 yards.”

HAHAHAHA…. I love it.

I don’t even really know what it means, but I love it.

George Strait ladies and gentleman… the King of Country, the most #1 singles of all time, and the only man in country music history that can make a cowgirl’s jeans twitch at 100 yards.

Long live the King.

George Strait Sings Brooks & Dunn’s “Boot Scootin’ Boogie”


Back in 2010, the Academy of Country Music brought some of country’s biggest stars together to honor one of the most iconic duos in country music history… the great Brooks & Dunn.

Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, even Taylor Swift… tons of artists were there to pay tribute to Kix and Ronnie.

But there was another artist there, even more legendary than Brooks & Dunn… the great George Strait.

Donning a bright white suit jacket, and even his glasses, George walked onto that stage like an angel walks through Heaven. Glowing, floating… with a certain holy reverence about him.

And after some kind words about Kix and Ronnie, King George went to work on an electric cover of the 1991 classic, “Boot Scootin’ Boogie.”

And he blew the damn roof off.

How about that baby-faced Luke Bryan in the crowd too? Time flies…

George Strait Nearly Breaks His Own RodeoHouston Attendance Record

Looks like King George brought the house down at RodeoHouston.

Of course, what’s the world’s biggest rodeo without George Strait himself?

The country legend drew a crowd of 79,452 fans, almost topping his 2019 appearance, where he set an NRG Stadium record of 80,108 fans.

For this year’s show, he played an astounding 29 songs over a course of two-plus hours, according to Houston Culture Map.

Although he drew nearly an identical crowd at his 2019 show, which featured Texas country legends Robert Earn Keen and Lyle Lovett, he decided to bring in a young face to join him on stage this year as an opener, and it was Ashley McBryde.

She performed her hits like “Martha Devine,” “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega,” “Voodoo Doll,” “Whiskey + Country Music,” as well as a kickass rendition of the Allman Brothers’ “Midnight Rider.”

After a 20 minute intermission, it was time for Strait to hit the stage.

He strutted on stage reppin’ a red and white plaid dress shirt, a black cowboy hat, blue jeans, and brown cowboy boots.

He kicked things off with his Pure Country movie hit song, “Heartland,” and the crowd was on their feet, roaring.

Needless to say, it was quite the memorable night for the man.
