George Strait, who is better known as the “King of Country”, left many a country music fans with teary eyes with his beautiful rendition of “The Breath You Take”. The singer who is known for his passionate singing was able to captivate the audience by singing the song that features in his new album.

His performance followed just after Miranda Lambert soared up the heat with her beautiful rendition of “That’s the way, the world goes round”. As the singer strummed his guitar, the crowd cheered loud with excitement. However, as he proceeded with the song, it became clear that George Strait has chosen a soulful number for the night.
