The Country King Accomplished Amazing Career Milestone

Filed under: Dennis Harold |

I’ve noticed that Country Music legend George Strait songs cover a wide range of topics, especially love but he and his fans have got to love the milestone that he recently accomplished close to his 60th birthday.

George Strait became the first music artist in history, regardless of genre, to place 60 songs at the top of the charts when Mediabase named “Give It All We Got Tonight” as this week’s most played song on country radio. The song is the first single from Strait’s new album Love Is Everything, released last week.Strait playing Brooks & Dunn tribute

Strait fans, radio stations and some of country music’s biggest artists joined the ‘Sixty For Sixty’ movement  to accomplish the historic career milestone — giving George his sixtieth number one single, while he was sixty years old. It came down to the wire, as Strait turned 61 over the weekend (on Saturday, May 18), but in the words of the man himself, “I may be 61, but I don’t feel a day over 60.”

Congratulation, George – I could have never imagined such a career accomplishment as this! Best wishes and many compiled memories on your, The Cowboy Rides Away Tour!!
