George Strait Singles That Surprisingly Were NOT Number Ones

When you think of country music, you think of George Strait.

The undisputed KING of Country Music, George’s career spanned across 5 decades featuring over 100 singles, 60 of which have become number ones.

60 number ones is good enough for, oh I don’t know… the most in the history of country music.

Eric Church and his wife like to play this little George Strait drinking game, and the rules are really simple: Go back and forth naming number one singles from George and if you’re wrong, you take a drink. Sounds fun right?

Anyways, I got to thinking about all the Strait hits, but what about some of the songs that weren’t number ones?

Some of them may surprise you…

“Amarillo By Morning”

“Marina del Rey”

“The Cowboy Rides Away”

“Cowboys Like Us”


And shoutout to George holding it down with a bottle of Codigo tequila during the quarantine.

What a legend.
