George Strait has had over 50 hit songs, but what would he choose over having 10 more instant classic country hits? Hint: it’s a true Texas answer.

At the San Antonio Rose Palace every year, George Strait holds the George Strait Team Roping Classic. March 2016 marked its 34th showing, and over $636,500 was given in prize money. Dustin Egusquiza placed first and received $115,500.

Roping champions compete around the country to join the lineup of this awesome event and in the interview below, Strait discusses the difference between going out on stage and heading out to the dirt. His honesty and easy going personality shines through in this great interview clip.

The way George makes it sound, he’s chosen his fate as a singer and to go back in time to compete in events like this, it would require “a lot of bad things to happen to good people,” he answers jokingly. However, he would give up the chance to have 10 more hit country songs in place of winning a prestigious roping championship.

It’s awesome to see how country music icons give back to their communities in surprising and oftentimes quiet ways. The George Strait Team Roping Classic is the largest open team roping event in America. Watch his interview below.
