Every Texas legend deserves a mural. Willie has one. Selena has one. Now it's King George's turn. Artist Matt Tumlinson, a member of the San Antonio Street Artist collective, has created a majestic work of art in tribute to the King of Country, George Strait.
Strait is depicted as he is in our hearts -- true country royalty. The singer is dressed as a nobleman in a crown, cape and (Texas-shaped) jewels. (Don't worry, the cowboy hat still remains intact.)
If you're already plotting how to get a picture with Texas music monarch, you can find the mural at North St. Mary's Street in San Antonio. Strait was raised in Pearsall, Texas, located about an hour outside of San Antonio.
"Had an awesome time painting on the home turf! Here's south Texas native and country legend 'King George'- N. St. Mary's, San Antonio Texas 2019. Great group of people doing great thing in this one of a kind city," Tumlinson wrote on Instagram.
