With countless top hits and more than 160 million records, “The King of Country” isn’t the only title George Strait has earned. Because of his sleek, genuine country sound, George has long been the subject of great inspiration ever since he debuted in 1976.
Even after his great success, George is simply a humble and truthful man, traits that his country supporters really appreciate. He’s also popular for his cowboy appeal, a thing that is best displayed in his trademark smile.
Just like George himself, his smile mesmerized all of us from the start. It was difficult to do, but we have chosen the top ten moments where George’s smile was so mesmerizing that it got our fanboy/fangirl hearts beating like crazy.

9. THAT MOMENT WHEN HE GAVE US A SLY GRIN
Usually George can be seen wearing a bright, happy grin. However, in this picture from his start in country music, George gave the camera a sly, curled grin. This just goes to show that George is really the King of Smiles!
8. THAT TIME HE SPENT SOME TIME WITH HIS GREATEST BUDDY
As with any real cowboy, George is a massive animal lover. He keeps his greatest companion – Buster, an Australian Cattle Dog – very close to his heart. Buster showed up on one of George’s album jackets, and was also showcased with him in ads for Wrangler Jeans. It’s obvious from the huge smile on George’s face that Buster is a wonderful source of happiness in his life.
7. THAT MOMENT HE GRANTED US A ‘PURE COUNTRY’ SMILE
Seen in this image, George is all dolled up as his character in the 1992 film, Pure Country. George starred as country star Wyatt “Dusty” Chandler, who made a stand to keep his shows “pure country,” without having all of the unwanted features of a stage production.
The official soundtrack of the film gave George one more reason to smile: it happened to turn into his best-selling album, with more than 6 million albums sold.
