Iconic entertainer George Strait has been named “Texan of the Year” by the Texas Legislative Conference. At the 52nd annual statewide forum in New Braunfels, Strait was recognized for his many contributions to the state of Texas and his role leading recovery efforts following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Strait’s “Hand in Hand” Texas benefit concert and telethon raised over $22 million towards hurricane recovery. Strait is pictured with former Texas state representative Doug Miller, Gruene Hall co-owner Mary Jane Nalley and Robin Jeffers, New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce board chair.
