You know how Robert Redford is kind of old, but he can still be described as “boyishly good-looking”? That’s the only person in the world you can compare George Strait to. Strait is only 65-years-old in comparison to Redford’s 80 years, but still– the smile has always been there. It’s disarmingly charming– devilish almost, right? Right.
During a recent profile of Strait in The New Yorker, Reba McEntire described what it was like to play a show with Strait back in the ’80s:
The girls was gettin’ after him so bad,” she said, “that the club had to stack bales of hay in front of the stage. (She added her own honest appraisal: “He’s a sexy little rascal.”)
“Sexy little rascal”? That totally nails it.
It took a few decades but someone finally accurately described George Strait in print.
