Remember George Strait’s First No. 1 Single? [Listen]

It’s the song that started it all for George Strait. Believe it or not, it actually took a few tries before the King would nab his first No. 1 on the country charts. Fifty nine others would follow during a 33-year (and counting) career. Do you remember which song hit the top of the charts first?

In the summer of 1982, ‘Fool Hearted Memory,’ the first release from Strait’s ‘Strait from the Heart’ album, hit the top of the country music charts. Before that, three others from the ‘Strait Country’ album came close, including his debut single, ‘Unwound.’

During his Cowboy Rides Away Tour, Strait has put ‘Fool Hearted Memory’ into the setlist, allowing fans to enjoy songs from his entire career, not just the most popular songs on the radio at the time. As of 2014, Strait has scored 60 No. 1 hits, but even though he’s finished touring, he promises he’ll continue to release new music.
