Help a brother (George Strait) out
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Country music stars and fans are helping to make history by joining the "Sixty For Sixty" movement (#60for60), which celebrates George Strait as he approaches the 60th No. 1 single of his career with "Give It All We Got Tonight," before his 61st birthday on May 18.

"Sixty For Sixty" first started on Valentine's Day when fans rallied together on Strait's Twitter and Facebook pages encouraging local country radio to meet the challenge and spin the record.

It appears their efforts have paid off as "Give It All We Got Tonight" is the fastest certified Gold single of Strait's career and currently sits in the Top 15 on the Country radio charts.

It is the first single from his forthcoming album, due for release in late spring. Fellow Country music artists including Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, Josh Turner, Darius Rucker and others have joined the "Sixty For Sixty" movement, seen here: http://youtu.be/J0NBfNnuI-g.
