Strait to the top again

Tuesday, March 20, 2012 – George Strait, yet again, is at the top of the song chart. His current single Love's Gonna Make It Alright off "Here for a Good Time" is at the top of the mediabase radio chart.

This feat ironically marks his 59th career number one hit for the 59 year old singer. The song, written by Al Anderson and Chris Stapleton is one of the few Strait did not write with son Bubba and longtime pal Dean Dillon for this album.

"You know, I've always thought that whether I'm writing or not, I've gotta pick the best songs, whether or not they're mine," said Strait. "I'm not gonna sing 'em just because I wrote 'em. I've gotta find the best songs to make the best record I can. I think all of these songs deserve to be on the record."

With a career spanning more than 30 years, Strait has the most number one singles of any artist in history including Elvis.

CD review - Cold Beer Conversation recording front. This surprise release shows an artist now in his early 60s completely capable of being the leading voice for his brand of country music, which is increasingly rare these days. Strait always has enjoyed a voice that resonates and is dexterous depending on the style. And the Texan sticks with the types of styles that brought him to the top - traditional country ("Let It Go," "Goin' Goin' Gone"), Texas swing ("It Takes All Kinds") and Zydeco ...
CD review - The Cowboy Rides Away: Live From AT&T Stadium George Strait has been one of the most dependable country music stars for three decades. In this day and age, the Texan is a certifiable throwback. He's low key, not a self-promoter. All's he has done is churn out hit after hit for decade after decade. He has not been the kind of artist who put his finger up in the air either or trading his cowboy hat for a baseball cap. When looking up the definition of traditional country, George Strait sits at the top. Strait tackles 20 songs on ...
