George Strait was joined by a very special guest during his record-breaking performance at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo last year. The King of Country brought his grandson, Harvey Strait, to the stage to sing "God and Country Music."
Harvey Strait also appears on the studio version of the song and his grandfather is clearly proud to see him make his live debut at RodeoHouston.
Strait closed out the rodeo, performing for over 80,000 attendees. According to the Houston Chronicle, Strait set a new NRG Stadium attendance record with his performance.
"God and Country Music," written by Luke Laird, Barry Dean and Lori McKenna, is included on Strait's 2019 album Honky Tonk Time Machine. The album includes 12 original songs and one cover ("Old Violin," originally written and recorded by Johnny Paycheck). Strait previously released "God and Country Music," "Código," "Every Little Honky Tonk Bar," "The Weight of the Badge," and the title track. The album also includes "Sing One With Willie," which George Strait and Willie Nelson debuted at the Willie Nelson tribute concert in 2019.
