Times photographer Brian Chilson got some great photos from Friday's George Strait concert at Verizon Arena. Attendance was 17,036, and during the main set, Strait and Army Lt. Gen. Leroy Sisco presented the keys to a new home to Army veteran Cory Perrin and his wife Nancy, of St. Louis. Perrin was injured in 2006 while on patrol east of Baghdad when an IED exploded. He suffered traumatic brain injury and injuries to his spine, and he suffers from post-traumatic stress as well.

Perrin, who received the Purple Heart among several other awards, was presented with the house through the Military Warriors Support Foundation's "Homes 4 Wounded Heroes" program.

There are more photos after the jump of Strait, the Perrins and concert opener Martina McBride.

He’s a coach on NBC’s reality TV singing competition “The Voice,” he’s a popular co-host for the annual Academy of Country Music awards, he has deals with Pepsi and Pizza Hut and, of course, he’s the husband of country star Miranda Lambert. /more/
