George Strait’s son is all grow up, and he’s a team roper and country singer


George Strait is a certified legend of the country music scene, known as the “King of Country” and widely considered as one of the most influential artists of all time.

The 68-year-old has achievements beyond reckoning and is rightly recognizeed as perhaps the primary force in American country music.

And yet away from the cameras, George has plenty to be proud of too, not least due to the fact that his son, George Harvey Strait Jr. (aka Bubba) has largely followed in his footsteps.

Cowboy to the core.

Born in 1981, Bubba is the second child of George and his wife Norma. He attended college at Texas A&M, but would go on to become a team roper with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association afterwards.

Given that George Strait is himself a fan of team roping, his son’s decision to take it up must surely have sat well.

Indeed, in a 2004 interview with The Team Roping Journal, George said:

“It’s the greatest feeling in the world to watch my son win a roping, or even to just watch him compete,” adding, “Bubba and I have been fortunate to win a couple of buckles together, and that, my friends, is the ultimate.”

Tʜʀᴏᴡʙᴀᴄᴋ ᴛʜᴜʀsᴅᴀʏ!! Taking a break from real estate posts to throwback to Bub and I before we were married. Ten years ago, we were taking engagement photos. 😱 How has it already been ten years!? (Together for 15) Want to know how he proposed? We were headed to Alaska for a fly fishing trip. He was going to propose there. But, he couldn’t wait – so he proposed on the way there, on a plane. The ring must have been burning a hole in his pocket. Got engaged and learned how to fly fish. Pretty amazing trip! ♥ // #straitluxury #throwbackthursday #engagementphotos #proposal #realtor #realestate #boernetexas #boernerealestate #horsesofinstagram #luxuryrealestate #luxuryrealtor #texasrealtor #texasrealestate #phyllisbrowningcompany Photo by @skeemphotography_

Not only that, but George Jr. has also proven himself adept when it comes to being a singer-songwriter.

Bubba’s work actually featured on his father’s 2009 album Twang, where he co-wrote three songs and solo wrote the track “Arkansas Dave”.

As per reports, Bubba and his real-estate wife Tamara live together in Texas with their two young children, Jilliann Louise Strait and George Harvey Strait III aka “Harvey.”

I don’t know about you, but I can only imagine how proud George Sr. must be of his son.

I can think of nothing more suitable than for a country icon like George to have a son who loves the rodeo and sings country music.
