It’s hard to keep up with all the milestones in George Strait’s legendary career.

I mean, I feel like there’s an anniversary for one of his albums at least once every other week. But, that’s not really a surprise seeing as The King of country music has a whopping 30 studio albums under his belt.

And on this date in 1983, he released his third studio album, Right Or Wrong.

It was his first #1 album on the U.S. Country charts, and included three #1 singles in “You Look So Good in Love,” “Let’s Fall to Pieces Together,” and one of three covers featured on the record, “Right or Wrong” (an old song dating back to the 1920s, but made famous by both Emmett Miller and Bob Wills).

The other covers were Hank Williams’ “I’m Satisfied with You” and Merle Haggard’s “Our Paths May Never Cross”.

“You Look So Good In Love” was actually the first music video George ever made, and it’s as 80s (and glorious) as they come:

Here’s a young George Strait on Austin City Limits singin’ “Our Paths May Never Cross”:
