As we come to the midpoint of 2019, The Boot is looking back at some of the top headlines from the first half of the year. All this week (June 10-14), readers can look back and remember the stories that have made waves in the country music world during the year thus far.

To determine the five biggest stories of each month, The Boot's staff looked at website traffic; the featured stories received the most visitors throughout the month in which they broke.

In March of 2019, George Strait had country fans all kinds of excited thanks to his new music -- but he wasn't the only big star dropping new tunes that month. In fact, four of the biggest headlines of March are new music-related (and two of them belong to the King of Country Music himself).

Chuck Wicks had some big personal news to share during March, too -- and country fans most definitely know his future brother-in-law! Read on for all the details.
