Today(May 18th) is George Strait's 65th Birthday. A Houston Honky Tonk is looking to celebrate it in a big way!

Stampede Houston is having a big dance-a-thon and looking to break the record for the longest couple’s dance time in history. Participants will be “Dancing for a Cure” with all proceeds going toward the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

If they are to break that record, couples will be on the dance floor for a long time. The current record is 38 hours and 31 minutes.

According to the Houston Chronicle, participants must keep their feet moving at all times. Five minute breaks are factored into each hour & dancers are free to eat and drink. There will also be a number of short rest periods.

The winning couple gets a pair of tickets to Strait’s 2 Nights of No. 1’s residency at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena, which is an awesome prize!
