George Strait’s First Eight No. 1′s
At 59, George Strait has topped the charts with his 58th No. 1 single. While ‘Here For A Good Time’ is sitting at the top, I thought it would be fun to go back and remember George’s first eight No. 1 records.
George released his first single in 1981, ‘Unwound,’ the song peaked at No. 6, followed by ’Down and Out’ at No. 16, and ‘If You’re Thinking You Want A Stranger’ at No. 3. Then, in 1984, George would finally hit the top of the Billboard Charts with ‘Fool Hearted Memory.’
During this stretch of George Strait’s first eight No. 1 hits, there were a few gems that fell short of hitting the top, but became George Strait fan favorites. 1983′s ‘Amarillo By Morning’ topped out at No. 4, while 1985′s ‘The Cowboy Rides Away’ and ‘The Fireman’ stalled at No. 5.
