Country legend George Strait had an epic message for fellow Texans about how they can stay safe during the coronavirus pandemic as the state reopens.

“Write This Down, Take a Little Note from the King of Country, @GeorgeStrait,” read the caption for a clip shared on Twitter Thursday by Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbot. ( RELATED: FLASHBACK: Jan.21: Fauci Says Coronavirus ‘Not A Major Threat’ To U.S.)


“We all know that being Texan means being friendly,” the 68-year-old country singer shared in the video. “And as we open Texas back up, it’s important that we stay extra friendly by thinking about all our fellow Texans.”(RELATED: To Mask Or Not To Mask?

The “Amarillo By Morning” hitmaker then listed recommended actions such as wearing a face mask, washing hands regularly and adhering to social distancing guidelines, including staying six feet away from other people when in public.
