Country legend George Strait once provided some much needed comic-relief to a battle Miranda Lambert was having with her dad.  Some years ago, while Miranda was opening dates for George, her dad objected to Miranda’s now-famous guns-and-wings tattoo on her arm.  George got word of the father-daughter disagreement and ordered nearly one hundred press-on tattoos for the band and crew to put on to surprise her.  Miranda says “It sort of like broke the ice between me and my dad and he talked to me again and wasn’t mad anymore,” Miranda says, “so I like to say that George Strait helped mend my dad’s and my relationship over the tattoo incident.”  That’s why George is “The King!”
