AUDIO | “I Saw God Today”

Nashville, TN (February 12, 2008) — For years George Strait has been known as the ‘King of Country’ and ‘The Texas Troubadour.’ Exemplary titles such as these don’t come easy and with twenty plus years experience under his belt, the country superstar continues to break records – including his own.

‘I Saw God Today’ is the highest single debut of George Strait’s illustrious career. This brand new song debuted at #19 on the R&R and Billboard radio charts this week. When contacted with this news, George said, ‘Wow, let me just say a huge thank you to country radio! I love you guys.’

Royce Risser, Sr. VP of National Promotion at Universal Music Group commented on the single’s immediate success, ‘At this point, I don’t know how you call any single from George a ‘Career Record’ but I have heard more unsolicited praise for this song than any since I have been at the label. I have said this before, but we will never witness another artist like this in our lifetime…simply amazing.’

On Monday, Feb. 4 at 12:01am, the single was made available to radio stations across the country for download. A mere fourteen hours later it was the most added song at country radio. In seven days time, the single had 131 adds.

The upcoming CD, appropriately entitled, Troubadour, will be released on April 1st. It brings about some notable collaborations including a duet with the great Patty Loveless, and long time songwriting partner, Dean Dillon. Distinguished songwriter Leslie Satcher also lends her songwriting expertise to a good number of the twelve tracks.

Since his debut in 1981, Strait has sold more than 62 million records and counting. With 32 different platinum or multi-platinum albums, he’s earned the second most certifications of any artist in any genre, following only Elvis Presley. George Strait has received more than 50 major entertainment industry awards and countless nominations. Strait has 70 Country Music Association nominations, was the CMA ‘Vocalist of the Year’ five times and the only artist in history to be so honored in two different decades. He recently took home the CMA Album of the Year award for It Just Comes Natural.

    I used to never listen to country music, but it’s changed. A lot of it is more mainstream and I like that. Plus the women are hot and that makes everything better!
