George Strait is the King of Country Music, having sold more than 68.5 million records and counting. With 33 different platinum or multi-platinum albums, he’s earned the second most certifications of any artist in any genre, following only Elvis Presley. With a total of 60, George Strait has more #1 songs than any other artist in history (including Elvis). In July 2013, Strait was awarded Billboard’s Legend of Live award. With a history holding the record for most number one albums, gold albums, and platinum albums, Strait is also the only artist in the history of music (all genres) to have a top ten hit every year for thirty years. He also is second all-time in top ten hits in the history of music currently ten away from breaking the all-time record held by Eddy Arnold who had 92 in his historic career. Strait was only the second artist at the time (after Eddy Arnold in 1966) to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame (2006) while still actively recording and producing chart-topping hits and albums.
