George Strait to get star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

George Strait will be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The country music star is part of the Walk of Fame’s Class of 2025, alongside other superstars.

Strait’s nomination comes just after he broke the record for the concert with the largest attendance in a single night in the United States on June 15.

A record 110,905 people packed into Kyle Field at Texas A&M University to see Strait perform.
