Were you surprised Wednesday night when country music mega star George Strait was named Entertainer of the Year? The win Wednesday night was Strait's third in the category -- but his first since 1990. Huge, indeed!

But, he is after all 'The man.'  That's what Garth Brooks called him so it must be true. Strait was happy with the announcement too. He said,

"This blows me away," he said. "This means the world to me, I appreciate it. Thank you."

Anyone that's listened to Kickin' Country over the past 15 years knows that I'm a pretty big George Strait FAN. Many times I featured George Strait, playing nothing but 'George' over the lunch hour during the Kickin' Country Cafe.

I love his music.  More than his music, I love his stories. His songs are all 'Mini Movies' for your mind.  I AM a George Strait FAN.

George has a pretty cool story out right now.  It's called, 'I Got a Car.'  Give it a listen.  And let us know what you think.

With Veteran's Day coming up Monday, George Strait has been hard at work helping 'those who have served.'  You'll want to see this story!

Make sure to 'share' this story with your Facebook friends or Twitter followers.  He is, after all....The Man!
