George Strait’s Troubadour has been certified platinum, his 33rd album to reach that sales mark.
How rare is this accomplishment? He trails only Elvis Presley (45) and The Beatles (39) among all recording artists.
Strait’s nearest country competitors are Alabama (20), Reba McEntire (19), Kenny Rogers (19) and Garth Brooks (16).
George Strait is one of those artists that I buy every album of. I remember being amazed how many albums he already had released when I became a fan in the nineties. It’s good to see him still going strong.
How many Strait albums do you own? What other artists do you buy every release from?
