George Strait Set His ‘Chair’ on the Top of the Charts 31 Years Ago Today [VIDEO]
George Strait has had so many songs that would be considered "career" records. Songs like "Amarillo By Morning", "I Cross My Heart", "The Cowboy Rides Away" and dozens more but there is one that has always been at the top of the list for me. It was the one song that really made me a dyed in the wool Strait fan and that is "The Chair".
On this date back in 1985 I was on my way to North Dakota State University for a short attempt at college and George claimed the top spot on the charts with this barroom classic. Take a few minutes, pull up a chair and enjoy the sound of the King of Country at his best.
