George Strait’s Grandson Bids in Roping Auction With the King’s Help [Watch]
George Strait fans attending the country legend's annual George Strait Team Roping Classic in San Antonio, Texas, got a real treat during the charity auction when King George's grandson got in on the action.
The two-day roping classic was held March 10-11, and each year Strait and his family bid on the roping chute. This year, Strait let his grandson Harvey take part in bidding.
Standing in front of his grandfather, Harvey turned around for a cue from Strait before promptly raising his hand in the air for the bid. Strait looked on and was all smiles while Harvey continued waving his hand in the air to get the attention of the auctioneer. At the end of the bidding, Harvey turned back around to receive a high-five from his legendary grandfather.
The George Strait Team Roping Classic was held at the San Antonio Rose Palace Arena. The largest event of its kind in the U.S., 516 teams from around the country competed in the 2017 event.
Strait is currently in the midst of his Strait to Vegas residency, where he has four weekends of shows remaining in 2017, all at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. His shows kick back up on April 7-8, and he’ll also play July 28-29, Sept. 1-2 and Dec. 8-9. In collaboration with his Vegas residency, Strait has revealed a new app where fans can vote for their favorite No. 1 songs. The new Strait to Vegas App also gives fans a chance to win a VIP prize package that includes tickets to one of Strait’s Las Vegas shows on April 7-8 where he’ll play all 60 No. 1 hits, 30 on one night and 30 the next.
