How the ’90s Played Out for George Strait

Strait was a busy man in the ’90s. Believe it or not, but King George was releasing his tenth studio album at the beginning of the decade. Livin’ It Up featured two number one hits, including “Love Without End, Amen,” and “I’ve Come to Expect It From You.” Both songs remained in the No. 1 spot for five weeks in 1990.

Then in 1992, Strait starred in the film “Pure Country” and also sang the soundtrack for the film. It was his most successful studio album with hits like “Heartland,” “I Cross My Heart,” and “When Did You Stop Loving Me.”

The King of Country Music continued to release albums throughout the ’90s. His next one came in 1994, titled Lead On, then Blue Clear Sky in 1996, Carrying Your Love With Me in 1997, and One Step at a Time in 1998.

During the stretch of time, Strait also released a four-disc best-of collection, Strait Out of the Box in 1995. It became the second best selling box set ever in the United States.

Strait was also winning awards during this time, too. In 1997 and 1998, he was named as CMA’s Top Male Vocalist.

The country music legend rounded out the decade with the album Always Never the Same. It peaked at No. 2 on the country charts. The album produced the hits “What Do You Say to That,” “Meanwhile,” and “Write This Down.”
