George Strait Is King of the Charts
George Strait's 38th album is sitting pretty on top of both the country and all-genre album charts today. 'Twang' sold more than 155,000 copies in its first week of release, pushing the late Michael Jackson's 'Number Ones' album to No. 2.
'Twang' is George's fourth album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and 13th to hit the top of the country charts. It also marks the first time since 1982 that the superstar has writing credits on a record. He co-wrote three tracks on the album, including the first single, 'Living for the Night,' penned with legendary tunesmith Dean Dillon and George's son, Bubba Strait.
