King George Reigns

King George (aka George Strait) garnered three nominations for Grammy Awards at the unveiling of the 2008 nominees. He was nominated for 'Male Country Performance', Country Album for 'It Just Comes Natural' and Country Song for 'Give It Away'. The Grammy winners will be announced on the Grammy Awards show broadcast Feb. 10th from the Los Angeles Staples Center on CBS TV (assuming the dreaded writers' strike is settled by then).
King George will be in Philadelphia for a concert at the Wachovia Center on Saturday, February 16 and all his subjects will be there to pay homage to the man who's often been called "the Frank Sinatra of country music." If you haven't purchased your tickets for the Philly gig, forget it. Any appearance by King George completely sells out in a matter of minutes. There are only a few more stops in the tour after Philly: Richmond VA, Lexington KY, Cleveland, Albuquerque NM and Lubbock TX. Find the complete tour schedule here.
