Country singer George Strait postponed his concert at the Sprint Center on Saturday night, telling his crowd of about 18,000 that he was too sick to go on. About 9:15 p.m,. as the P.A. system played "Deep in the Heart of Texas," Strait took the stage and strapped on his guitar. He then sang "Here for a Good Time," though clearly he was not.
The night wasn't a complete loss for most fans. Martina McBride opened the show with a one-hour set that included several of her best-known songs.
