George Strait Becomes a Grandfather

Congratulations are in order for the legendary George Strait, who is now a proud (and might we add very cool) grandpa! Strait’s songwriting son Bubba and his wife Tamara welcomed their first child into the world last Thursday, Feb. 2, as announced by the glowing Gramps from onstage in Phoenix, Ariz. last week. Local country radio station KMLE broke the news following Strait’s show Friday night.

Strait, who was playing the US Airways Center at the time, isn’t one to say a whole lot on stage, but during the final verse of his hit song, ‘I Saw God Today,’ the singer couldn’t wipe the smile from his face as he sang about a baby being born in the song. As the song came to an end and the crowd’s applause increased, Strait shyly stepped back to the mic to fill his fans in on his exciting news.

“Yesterday, my son just had his new baby,” Strait said over the cheering fans, as he continued to step toward and from the mic with a grin, not sure if he should say more or continue onto the next tune. His band then helped him decide when they began playing the intro to ‘Check Yes or No.’

Strait’s tour with opener Martina McBride continues this week with stops in Las Vegas, Atlanta and Orlando. Click here for a complete list of dates where the tour is stopping — perhaps you can drop in and tell him congratulations for us!
