George Strait Named Decade's Best
Posted Nov 3rd 2008 12:00PM by Gayle Richardson


George Strait will add another prestigious award to his collection on April 6, 2009, when he is honored as the Academy of Country Music's Artist of the Decade at the posh MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

In addition to being a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Strait holds the distinction of having the most No. 1 songs in country music with 56, as well as the most RIAA platinum certifications, with an astonishing 32 different platinum or multi-platinum albums in his 25-plus-year career.

Only the fifth artist to ever receive the Artist of the Decade honor, following in the footsteps of Marty Robbins, Loretta Lynn, Reba McEntire and Garth Brooks, Strait is the first artist to have the event honored with his own TV special, set to air at a later date on CBS. The ceremony honoring Strait takes place one day after the ACM Awards ceremony, also being held in Las Vegas.

I love me some George Strait... :B

Not a bad choice... George has doing his thing for a long time now. 8)

Looks like the Rock N' Roll HoF should take a peek at their selection standards, eh? :wink:

Hell yeah, I love me some George Strait too!

Steve, did you see him in Pure Country? Storyline is a bit cheesy and I LOATHE Leslie Ann Warren (Lula) but the soundtrack is KILLER!

I have the DVD. Might just pop that in tonight! :D

Pure Country........man does THAT bring back memories! My brother and I used to pick on George's acting all the time, saying his first line in the movie........"It's all that damn smoke". :lol:

Seriously though......Pure Country is a cool movie and nobody's close to what George has accomplished!

I have heard a few tunes from the soundtrack... good stuff. 8)

I never did watch that movie, although I'm positive my wife has it here somewhere. I guess I always just assumed it would be a chick flick.

Is there something in the movie for the estrogen-impaired among us? :P

I was thinking that Alan Jackson might have been another good choice here, but I don't think he's got the longevity that George has. Either choice would've been good by me, though. :B
