George Strait is the King of Country Music. Unsurprisingly, he has also raked in several ACM Awards over the course of his career. In fact, he holds the record for most wins as well as nominations at the ACM Awards. His wins include Album of the Year, Top Male Vocalist, and Entertainer of the Year. Strait has even won Movie of the Year. In short, he has seen the ACM stage a time or two.
The 2021 ACM Awards show is set to kick off in just a few hours. With that in mind, George Strait shared some photos from his previous appearances on the show with his Twitter followers this afternoon. He only shared four photos, though. Probably because the native Texan tries to stay humble. On the other hand, it could be that Twitter just couldn’t handle the amount of stone-cold country awesomeness that would have been a full collection of photos featuring King George at the awards show.
Either way, the photos are a nice reminder of how important and lauded George Strait really is. Along with the collection of photos, Strait posed an important question to his fans.
George wants to know who will be tuning in to watch the show tonight.
