It's the year of the King -- King George Strait that is!

Last night at the 49th ACM Awards my Parrain walked away with the fan-voted Entertainer of the Year award. Quite a fitting tribute to the man who's had 60 number one hits.

He's also currently on his Cowboy Rides Away farewell tour. We've actually got a chance for you to win a trip of a lifetime to be in the audience for his final show at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas on June 7th.

I thought it would be fun to reminisce a little and take a look back at some of the great George tunes of all-time. So, over the next couple of weeks I'll give you my favorite Strait songs from the decades of the '80s, '90s and 2000s.

Up first, my five favorite George Strait songs of the 1980s (in no particular order). Boy, was this difficult!
