On This Date: George Strait Was At #1 For The 5th Straight Week With “Love Without End, Amen”

George Strait country music

By the time the ’90s rolled around, George Strait had already made a name for himself as one of the greatest country artists on this planet, with a ton saying he’s gonna end up being the best to ever do it.

I mean c’mon, how could they not? King George already had 18 number one singles to his name in his still relatively young career, along with hit albums like Strait From The Heart, Right Or Wrong, Something Special, Ocean Front Property, and hell, just about every album the man dropped in the ’80s featured at least one number one single.

The man was on a roll, and it looked like he was showing zero signs of slowing down…

And boy, he didn’t.

Back on April 6, 1990, Strait released one of his all time greats, “Love Without End, Amen. Written by Aaron Barker, the song was also featured on his Livin’ It Up album.

Once the song reached number one in June of 1990, it didn’t stop there, as the song stayed at number one for five straight weeks up to this date back in 1990.

“Love Without End, Amen” was the first ever multi-week number one George Strait had ever released, and it further proved that the man didn’t just have an incredible string of luck in the ’80s, and he was just beginning.

Sure enough, the man would go on to release 41 more number ones after “Love Without End, Amen,” with the single being his most famous to date.

Cheers to the legend himself.
