George Strait gets his 60th No. 1

CMA congratulates George Strait for the unprecedented milestone of becoming the first the first artist ever to have 60 No. 1 singles.

According to Mediabase, his new single, “Give It All We Got Tonight,” on Monday was the No. 1 song played on Country radio for the week, and it happened as Strait was still 60 years old — but just barely. He turned 61 on Saturday, May 18.

“I didn’t realize we were making history — I just hoped we were putting out music that my fans would enjoy,” said Strait, a member of CMA’s Country Music Hall of Fame, in a news release. “As always, I’m thankful to the fans and country radio for their support on all 60 of these number one songs as well as my entire career. They are the ones who made this happen.”

Strait fans, radio stations and some of Country Music’s biggest artists took part in the’Sixty For Sixty’ campaign at SixtyForSixty.com.
