I wonder if this is legit. I guess if he has the scratches to prove it then that means it actually happened

I'm actually very skeptical of this guy's story. Reading some of his other comments (included in the source article linked in the USA Today one) doesn't exactly lend him much credibility. (I wonder why they left it out?)

Still, I want to believe.

Here's a just a start to George Strait's accomplishments:
Strait holds the record for most number one albums, gold albums, and platinum albums in the history of country music and is 11th in the most number one albums in all other genres. Strait is third only to Elvis Presley and The Beatles with the most gold and platinum albums in the history of music and currently is two away from passing them.

Duke! Are you a Strait fan? We can drink some cold beers and listen to him while arguing about politics!
