George Strait talks — and sings — about coronavirus safety in a new video from Texas

George Strait

When it comes to coronavirus safety, the King of Country has spoken.

George Strait partnered with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to release a video on Thursday about preventing the spread of COVID-19 as the state reopens during the pandemic. You can even hear the country star sing — albeit briefly — in his message to Texans.

“Hi, I’m George Strait,” he says. “We all know that being Texan means being friendly. And as we open Texas back up, it’s important that we stay extra friendly by thinking about all our fellow Texans.”

Then Strait pulls from one of his all-time greatest hits “Write This Down” for the next part of the public service announcement.

“So go on, write this down, take a little note, to remind you of these friendly things you can do to help defeat COVID-19,” Strait says. “Wash your hands regularly, wear a face mask, and stay six feet apart from others in public. Let’s show the world what it means to be Texan by staying safe and staying friendly.”

Country fans may have to wait awhile longer to hear Strait sing in person. He just announced shows scheduled for late August in Las Vegas will be postponed.
