Country music’s biggest stars and fans alike are getting behind George Strait for the “Sixty For Sixty” movement which celebrates George 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” started on Valentine’s Day when fans rallied on George’s Twitter and Facebook pages to encourage local radio stations to spin the record.
Artists including Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, Josh Turner, Darius Rucker and more have joined the movement by recording a video urging fans and radio to support George’s single. By visiting www.sixtyforsixty.com, fans can learn how they can help the movement using Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The website will continuously update as more artists, celebrities, and fans join the movement.
It appears as though their efforts are paying off. “Give It All We Got Tonight” is the fastest Gold certification of George’s career and is currently in the Top 15 at country radio. It is the first single from his upcoming album, expected out in late spring.
