George Strait Had His First Number Hit on This Date [VIDEOS]
George Strait has had at least 60 number one hits. It has been one of the greatest careers in the history of recorded music. I don’t think we will ever see anyone come close to doing what George has done in his career ever again. People just stick around that long anymore. It seems like you are popular for a year or three and then disappear or head to Branson if you are lucky.
It was on this date in 1982 that George first climbed to the top of the charts with his hit “Fool Hearted Memory.” He has gone on to do that 60 more times. Take a trip down memory lane with George and I.
His first big hit “Unwound” went to number 6 in 1981.
“Amarillo by Morning” may be one of his most popular songs but only went to number four in 1983.
