    Congrats to King of Country --George Strait—who has become the first music artist in history, regardless of genre, to push 60 songs to the top of the charts. That is BEYOND impressive.

    Strait gave it all he had, as his new single "Give It All We Got Tonight," was named the week's most played song on country radio.

    The song is the first single from Strait's new album Love is Everything, released last week.

    "I didn't realize we were making history -- I just hoped we were putting out music that my fans would enjoy," said Strait. "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."

    Congrats, George!
