Though George Strait is known as the King of Country Music, his grandson George Harvey Strait III is already stepping up to fill some big boots within the tight-knit family.
The George Strait Team Roping Classic, also known as GSTRC, just celebrated its 34th year! It is also the largest open Team Roping event in America. The event lasts two days and has awarded a grand total of about $5 million in prize money since its beginning. This past year drew in 583 teams with some of the best Team Ropers around. But this year was unique for George Strait and his grandson, who goes by Harvey.
During the second day of the event, they put on an auction where George traditionally starts the bidding. The money raised goes to charity and George’s little grandson helped him out with the bidding process this year.
Typically, George will bid on a chute until he wins, but then he gives it back and a second round of bidding begins. But this time around, Harvey made his way into the competition. He took over the bidding for his grandpa, and in the end, he looks at George with pure happiness.
Check out the precious grandpa-grandson interaction in the video below!
In the clip above, Harvey patiently waits for permission from grandpa to raise his hand, and when he gets the signal, he shoots his hand up with enthusiasm. He did a great job taking over the bidding for his grandpa, and he loves every minute of it. The Strait Family won the bid with Harvey at the forefront. He wants to make his grandpa proud, and by the smile on George’s face, we’re sure he did. Keep it up, Harvey!
George earned the title of “grandpa” in 2012 when his son Bubba and daughter-in-law Tamara had their first child, Harvey. Since then, the family has welcomed a daughter named Jillian as well. Family means everything to George, and no matter where he goes, his family is not too far behind. We’re happy to hear that the Strait family follows in George’s footsteps.
