The Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas celebrated its 40th anniversary on June 3 with the sold-out Strait Texas concert starring George Strait and opening band Asleep at the Wheel, promoted by Louis Messina. Pictured above are Messina, and the arena’s Laura Bennett, Christine Scott-Laakso, Strait, Liz Land and Jimmy Earl. (Below Middle) Strait does his thing, and (bottom) Ray Benson leads Asleep at the Wheel through their set. All photos by Scott Moore.
