Two country music titans top the singles charts this week with George Strait claiming the No. 1 Mediabase slot with ‘Here for a Good Time,’ and Blake Shelton reaching the summit on Billboard with ‘God Gave Me You.’

‘Here for a Good Time’ marks King George’s 58th chart-topper, making him country music’s most decorated singles artist. The momentous occasion is also George’s first trip to the top as a songwriter, proudly sharing the achievement with his son, Bubba Strait and co-writer Dean Dillon. The single is the first radio offering from George’s latest studio album of the same name, which debuted at No. 1 last month, selling 91,000 copies in its first week of release.

Blake keeps his streak of consecutive No. 1 singles alive, notching the tally to five (10th overall) with ‘God Gave Me You,’ the second single from ‘Red River Blue,’ his latest chart-topping album. Upon hearing songwriter Dave Barnes’ version on a Christian radio station, Blake confesses, “There was never a question … I never looked back after that,” he says. “I knew it was going to be a pivotal song for the album.”

George is set to take his ‘Good Time’ on the road, recently announcing Martina McBride as his opening act for his 2012 outing. Blake is also touring in promotion for his latest project. Click here to view Miranda Lambert‘s hubby’s tour schedule.
