In 1982, country music legend George Strait released his second studio album called Strait from the Heart. All four singles released from the album were top ten hits on the Hot Country charts in the U.S. as well as the Canadian Country charts.
Surprisingly, this song, Amarillo By Morning, which has become one of George Strait’s signature songs and considered one of the greatest country music songs of the last 40 years didn’t reach number one, but rather peaked at number four on the US country charts while hitting number one in Canada. No matter though. It’s a number one ’80s country hit to us! Here’s one of the all time greats, George Strait with his music video for Amarillo By Morning!
