1. Some of His Best Songs Never Reached No. 1

While George Strait has nearly 60 No. 1 hits (more than any other artist), some of this best work only made Top 5 or Top 10. Songs like 'Run,' 'The Fireman,' 'True' -- and more recently, 'You'll Be There' and 'Wrapped' -- didn't top the charts. Strait has released over 90 singles, at least one in every calendar year since 1981. No artist can claim that level of success.
