George Strait: The Story of Country's Living Legend Reviews
I always love reading about my favorite country music star. However, this book was hard to get through. It was very repetitive, and several times I didn't think I was going to make it to the end. Writing a book about a person, in my opinion, doesn't need to include what the critics think. They are who they are, and what the critics think doesn't make a difference. It's just irritating to the reader. I've read a book by this author before and it was by far better than this one.
I must have read this during my country music phase.
If you didn't like this performer before, you will probably respect him after reading this book.Raised in ranch country by a single father, he and his brother attended the same school where his father taught Jr. High math and ranched a small spread.Married to his high school sweetheart, served in the military, graduated from college with a degree in agriculture and a growing desire to perform.Go along for the ride of ups and downs on the road to stardom from Texas to Nashville and back again.
This book to me was a very good book it was basically a biography of George Strait and how he grew up as a boy in a small town in texas. George rose to fame and stardom when he started singing country music. George Harvey Strait was born on May 18, 1952 George Harvey Strait was born on May 18, 1952, in Poteet, in Atascosa County, south of San Antonio, Texas Strait's success began when his first single "Unwound" was a hit in 1981..
some chapters were quite boring.
