George Strait is granting an Arkansas teenager's wish. Fifteen-year-old Chase Pair is a die-hard Strait fan who recently learned that he will eventually lose his hearing and he wanted to hear his favorite singer perform live and meet the superstar.
According to Little Rock ABC affiliate KATV, Pair’s mother, Julie, wrote a letter to Strait's people explaining the situation and requesting an opportunity for Chase to see "King George" in concert and meet him. A few weeks later Julie got a response — a big "yes" from Team Strait, who are hosting Chase and his mom at one of Strait's concerts and a meet-and-greet in Las Vegas in April. Southwest Airlines has also agreed to provide free airfare to and from.
Chase said, “A million thank yous. I’m just ready to pack. I’m just happy. I want to go see him.”
