Strait To No 1

(PR) The King of Country Music strikes again, notching his 53rd number one. �Give It Away,� the debut song from his forthcoming album, is Strait�s fastest-moving single in five years before claiming the top spot in a mere 13 weeks, making him Billboard�s all-time leader for number one country singles.

Humble as always, Strait had this to say about his latest coup: �First of all, it's hard to believe it has been 25 years. When I think about putting together an album, the process of listening to hundreds of songs each time and picking out the best 10 or so that will go on the record, it really sinks in as to just how many songs I've listened to all these years. Considering that and the fact that my fans and friends at radio have stuck with me all this time makes it seem even more incredible. I can only say thank you and thanks also to all of the great songwriters who wrote those wonderful songs that became number ones.�

Strait�s highly anticipated 34th studio release, It Just Comes Natural, will be in stores on October 3. From sophisticated Western swing and clever barroom anthems to sawdust two-steppers and smoky neon ballads, the recordings are classic Strait.
