King George

George Strait that is:

As of 2008, he holds the record for the most Number One hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts with 43 number one singles on that chart. Counting all other music charts, Strait has amassed a total of 56 number one hits overall, breaking a record previously set by Conway Twitty.

Strait's 38 hit albums (12 multi platinum, 22 platinum and four gold) rank him only behind Elvis Presley and The Beatles

Wow, that is an impressive record. I don't follow country music much so have not been all that aware of who is who.

But that is a very good run.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I had nothing against the man until now, but he needs to be killed before he passes the Beatles.

Think outside the box and most of what hits the charts is really quite good. The simplicity of the lyrics comes off as honesty instead of the great look at me truths, which as we know do not materialize in reality.
