Strait’s 58th No. 1 Is Also A First

George Strait’s “Here For A Good Time” has become his 58th career No. 1 hit, following its ascent to the top of the CountryBreakout (on Sept. 16 and Sept. 23) and Mediabase charts. The song was co-written by George with his son Bubba and Dean Dillon and, surprisingly, marks his first No. 1 as a songwriter.

Strait has been a model of consistency over his legendary career, and holds the record for notching the most No. 1 singles of any artist in history, more than even Elvis and the Beatles. Eighty-four of his 89 radio singles have reached the top 10, and 73 of those were Top 5 or better. His career sales total almost 69 million records, and he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.

“Here For A Good Time” is the title track from Strait’s latest album, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and at No. 3 on The Billboard 200, behind Lil Wayne and Adele. Strait also has several headlining dates scheduled on his 2012 U.S. tour, featuring guest Martina McBride.
