If you’ve found the track listing for George Strait’s upcoming album, Honky Tonk Time Machine, on the internet, you might have noticed a super special guest for the King of Country Music—his grandson, Harvey. It turns out, though, that Harvey isn’t just good in the recording studio. He’s already a little master of commanding a live audience.
The seven-year-old, who is the spitting image of his daddy, Bubba, seemed completely unfazed by the thousands of fans who leaped to their feet when he held up his microphone. And although his part in “God and Country Music” came later in the song, he stood like a little statue as Grandpa George kicked off the pair’s duet. And with no visible cue from his legendary Pops, Harvey joined in at just the right time to finish the song with George proudly beaming at his protege.
And with a hug from Grandpa, and a wave to the fans, Harvey stepped off the stage as confident as a seasoned veteran.
If you weren’t in Texas for Harvey’s big Rodeo Houston debut, you can still enjoy hearing the youngster when Honky Tonk Time Machine drops on March 29. In addition to Harvey’s featured vocal on “God and Country Music,” George also collaborated with Willie Nelson for the appropriately titled, “Sing One with Willie,” and co-wrote eight of the album’s tracks.
Of course, Harvey could pop up at another show that the troubadour has scheduled for this year, like in Atlanta, Georgia on March 30 or Columbus, Ohio on June 8.
