Anyone who is familiar with country music knows about the Texan, George Strait.
Here are some interesting stats about this living legend: George Strait has 57 no.1 hits and 82 Top 10 hits. He recently set a new Billboard record as the first person to achieve a Top 10 hit every year for the past 30 years. He is the 10th best selling artist in the U.S. overall with 73 million shipments (RIAA). Strait’s current album, ‘Twang,’ has sold 551,000 copies since its release in August, 2009. George Strait’s 38 hit albums (12 multi platinum, 22 platinum and four gold) rank him behind only Elvis Presley and The Beatles (wikipedia).
