George Strait might be reconsidering his retirement plans after he picked up country music's top honor Wednesday for the third time in his long career.
Strait, 61, who's midway through his Cowboy Rides Away farewell tour, won entertainer of the year at the 47th annual Country Music Association (CMA) awards in Nashville, Tennessee, a laurel he last won in 1989 and 1990.
"This blows me away. I cannot believe it," said the down-to-earth Texan singer-songwriter, sporting his trademark 10-gallon hat and putting his hand over his heart.
