Congratulations go out to George Strait and his wife, Norma. The country music couple have welcomed their second grand baby into the Strait kingdom.
George and Norma’s son, Bubba, and his wife Tamara have announced that baby girl Jillian Louise arrived on Sept. 10. In 2012, they welcomed their first baby, a little boy named George Harvey Strait III. The tyke, who carries the nickname “Bubba,” like his dad, has even appeared in commercial spots for George’s “Cold Beer Conversation” album with his famous gramps and dad.
We haven’t seen the new little princess just yet, but we’re betting she’ll look great in bitty pink cowboy boots.
Just a few days after Jillian’s arrival, George announced another birth of sorts. “Strait Out of the Box: Part 2” will be released Nov. 18 exclusively through Walmart. The three-disc collection will feature 56 tracks hand-picked by The King himself, including 36 of his hit singles, 26 which are No. 1’s, along with some favorite album sides and a couple of never-before-heard Strait songs.
In 1995, George released his first box set, “Strait Out of the Box,” a four-disc collection that showcased his career from 1976 to 1995. And with sales exceeding $8 million, why wouldn’t you follow that up?
