George Strait on his Here for a Good Time Album CoverNashville, TN – September 14, 2011 – If a talented country music artist is lucky, they have a hit song or two on the radio. If luckier, they might have a number one selling album sometime in their career.  Accomplishing this feat multiple times and becoming a mainstay in the music business is something the elite few enjoy.  But there is only one artist who has had 84 out of 89 radio singles make it to Top 10 (57 to Number One) and 24 albums at the number one position on Billboard’s Country Music Album Chart – George Strait.

 

Strait continues to defy the odds, live up to the royal praise and deliver what only  “King George” can do.  His newly released album, Here For A Good Time, debuted at Number One on the Billboard Country Album Charts this week (his 3rd number one album debut in a row) and #3 on Billboard Top 200 Chart (behind Lil Wayne & Adele) with first week sales of 91,414.

 

The title track “Here For A Good Time,” written by Strait, his son Bubba Strait and songwriter Dean Dillon, is Strait’s 89th career single and sits at Number 8th this week on the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts.  This marks his 84th Top 10 radio hit and continues the unbelievable streak of having all but 5 singles in George Strait’s entire 30-year career reach the Top 10 mark (those five landed Top 20).
