HOUSTON – In the wake of Cardi B's record-breaking performance Friday night at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, many were left wondering about the 2013 attendance record held by country icon George Strait. 

Rodeo officials said Cardi B broke the record for all-time paid concert attendance during the actual rodeo, with 75,580 people.


In 2013 Strait's farewell concert at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo had 80,020 people. But, that was only a concert -- there was no rodeo that day.

That permitted more seats to be on the floor of the stadium, making it a separate category.
