In my opinion, today should be a national holiday as we celebrate the "King of Country Music" George Strait's birthday.  That's right the man himself is celebrating his 65 birthday today.

George has 57 number one hits to his credit.  Did you know that it's the most number ones in the history of not only Country music but of any genre of music?

George Strait started his career in 1981 and produced so many iconic songs in his career. "The Chair", Amarillo By Morning", "Baby Blue", "The Cowboy Rides Away" are some of my favorites.

George is still going strong doing a few dates every year in Las Vegas which sell out as soon as they go on sale.

Happy Birthday to in my opinion the greatest country music artist that has ever lived!
