George Strait isn’t known as the “King of Country” for no reason. The influential, iconic and legendary hitmaker has had such an impressive career, and even at 66 years old, he’s still going strong. Strait was born on May 18, 1952, in a town called Poteet, Texas. His Texas influence has been visible throughout his storied career, which began in 1981 with the release of “Unwound.” The following year the singer released the Straight from the Heart album, which included his first No. 1 hit, “Fool Hearted Memory.”
