George Strait And His Incredible Career

According to his website, “George Strait is the undeniable ‘King of Country Music.’

“His music career spans more than 30 years; includes 60 No. 1 singles, more than any other artist in any genre; and boasts 33 platinum or multi-platinum-selling albums, more than any country artist and third across all genres behind only The Beatles and Elvis Presley. 

“Strait is the only act in history to have a Top 10 hit every year for over three decades and has sold more than 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards,” according to his website.

“Strait, whose name has become synonymous with ‘real country’ since his 1981 debut, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006. He has since released five more albums, including the GRAMMY Award-winning Troubadour and his latest chart-topping release, Cold Beer Conversation.

“In 2014, he shattered the North American indoor concert attendance record by drawing 104,793 concert-goers to his The Cowboy Rides Away Tour finale at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.”

Additionally, one of Strait’s hit songs is “Down and Out” which he performed back in 1982 in New York City.
