King shit only.
Today, three George Strait songs officially earned new platinum certifications from the RIAA and when I first saw one of the songs that JUST went platinum, I was left shaking my head a little…
Troubadour, the hit song from 2008 was deemed 3X platinum, as well as one of my personal favorite Strait songs, Amarillo By Morning. The track that just reached platinum status, however, is the 1987 release, Ocean Front Property, and while George has over 50 No. 1 singles, it almost seems like a crime that it took one of his songs 36 years to receive a platinum certification.
Still, not too many people can fuck, or even come close to fucking, with the King.
Even if you’ve heard ’em eighteen hundred and fifty-two times before, listen to ’em again, below. George Strait is timeless.
