The Chair

by

George Strait



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Named by CMT as one of the 100 greatest Country songs of all-time, this was the result of a night-long songwriting binge by Country music songwriters Hank Cochran and Dean Dillon. The two had been writing songs all night long and as Dillon puts it "were about written out" when he strummed his guitar and sang the line "Excuse me but I think you've got my chair." Twenty minutes later, "The Chair" was complete.
This is one of Strait's 51 #1 hits, a record for Country music. (thanks, Julian - Oakland, AR, for above 2)

George is the King! It's wonderful to hear even the new acts sing his praises at his contributions to make country music what is it today. He is a class act. He's the best!

While I do love everything that George Strait has ever done, he doesn't have the most #1 hits. the actual holder of this title is Conway Twitty.

Actually, George Strait's 51 #1 hits isn't just a Country Music record. He has more #1 hits than any artist in the history of music...period.
