George Strait is receiving a significant honor from his home state of Texas. The country superstar has been named the 2018 Texan of the Year by the Texas Legislative Conference. Strait joins an elite group of Texans ranging from governors to presidents who have received the honor in the past. The country star’s charity work in 2017 put him over the top for the Texan of the Year honor. “No one has done more than George Strait to raise awareness and funds for the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts,” says conference chair Doug Miller in a press release.
