Last night's Rodeo concert featuring country music legend George Strait along with Martina McBride, and the Randy Rogers Band now holds the all-time paid attendance record at both Reliant Stadium and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

The Texas native played in front of a crowd of 80,020 people who purchased tickets to see the triple performance. That number breaks the previous record set on Go Tejano Day just over a week ago.

The Show announced last night that a Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo George Strait Scholarship will be awarded annually, from 2013 forward, through the Show's Educational Fund.
