Remembering George Strait’s Daughter Jenifer on Her 50th Birthday

That was one of the most devastating tragedies to befall a prominent country music singer. Yet it’s also rarely discussed and about which we know very little. Losing a child in a horrific accident is a life-changing occurrence that sticks with a person forever.

Having it happen just as your career is about to peak would undoubtedly throw many performers off their game. But the way George Strait processed and treated the tragedy was filled with insight, and it had far-reaching consequences for the artist and personality we know as “King” George today.
