February 14, 2008 - It's been nearly 27 years since George Strait first appeared on the national country charts, and after earning more than 50 No. 1 hits and joining the Country Music Hall of Fame, one might think he's pretty much done it all.

But George set another new mark this week. His new single, "I Saw God Today," debuted at No. 19 on the Billboard and Radio & Records country charts, representing the best first-week numbers of his entire career.

"Wow," George said. "Let me just say a huge thank you to country radio. I love you guys."

The song was released to country radio Feb. 4 and received instant acclaim. It's the first single from George's new album, Troubadour, set for release April 1. The CD will include a duet with Patty Loveless.
