George Strait Becomes A Grandfather


George Strait is now a grandfather as his son Bubba and daughter-in-law Tamara bore a son last week. The pair was married in December of 2010.

During a concert on February 3, the King of Country Music broke the news to his audience:

"I just found out yesterday, my son had a new baby," Strait said before his band kicked into "Check Yes or No."

Bubba (real name: George Strait Jr.) co-wrote the elder Strait's track "Here for a Good Time," the title song from his latest album. In fact, Bubba wrote more than half of the tracks on the upcoming record along with Dean Dillon.

At the time, Bubba told Cowboys and Indians magazine that he is more than satisfied with his behind-the-scenes role.

"I got my mom's singing voice," he said. "But that's OK, I don't know if I could sing in front of a lot of people anyway."
