Mission complete! George Strait’s 60 for 60 campaign was a success, with the singer’s latest single ‘Give It All We Got Tonight’ hitting the top of the charts the same week as his 61st birthday. He becomes the first artist in any genre of music to place 60 songs at the top of the charts.

‘Give It All We Got Tonight’ is Strait’s first single from his new ‘Love Is Everything’ album, released last Tuesday (May 14). It reached the top of the Mediabase charts as the most played song on country radio. The legend received considerable attention from fans and fellow artists during his lengthy 60 for 60 campaign.

Carrie Underwood, Vince Gill, Gary Allan, Tim McGraw, the members of Lady Antebellum and Scotty McCreery were among the stars wishing the King of Country a happy birthday, as well as congratulating him on his accomplishment. Montgomery Gentry suggested the icon begin an 80 for 80 campaign. Strait has said that even though he’s retiring from the road after 2014, he’ll continue to record new music and release new albums.
