George Strait - The Singles with Chart History

George Strait
George Strait. Tony Baker

George Strait is know as the King of Country, and with over 57 No. 1 songs, he sure has something to back up that statement. In 2009, The Academy of Country Music named him the ACM Artist of the Decade. He joins only four other artists that have received this honor -- Marty Robbins in 1969, Loretta Lynn in 1979, Alabama in 1988, and Garth Brooks in 1998.

I've compiled a list of all George Strait's single releases, along with chart position of each of them.

We've also listed which album the singles were from, as well as our album reviews, where applicable.

All information updated as of May 20, 2009.
