George Strait Gives Surprise Performance at SXSW

Here’s something you don’t see at every South By Southwest.

George Strait made a surprise appearance during Ray Benson’s annual Birthday Bash at GSD&M, an Austin advertising agency.

Strait joined Benson for a number of songs, including “All My Ex’s,” “Amarillo By Morning,” “Troubador,” and “Here for a Good Time.”

Strait wasn’t the only notable guest at Benson’s Birthday Bash. Other stars who performed included Jason Boland, Dale Watson, Sunny Sweeney, Bonnie Bishop and Carolyn Wonderland.

Asleep at the Wheel will perform their SXSW showcase on Thursday night from 12:00-12:40 AM at the Gatsby.
