I'm a huge George Strait fan so I was thrilled that he was at long last recognized as Artist of the Decade. 57 number one hits. Unmatched in any genre. Even a greater achievement, these number one hits have spanned 4 decades.
But the performances tonight underscored why: not only he's a great singer, he tells the story of the song. While a few of the country artists did a passable job of singing his hits, a number of them couldn't even begin to equal his performance of the song.
I agree with George: he needs to keep singing and give us those wonderful songs.
