As we continue to celebrate the "Year of the George", I thought it would be fun to look back a bit at some of the achievements of the amazing George Strait.

A couple of weeks ago, I gave you my top 5 favorite songs of the 1980s from George. Today, let's move a decade forward and highlight the 1990s.

Of course, that was the decade that some folks thought George Strait was fading in popularity.

Excuse me while I laugh...ok, I'm good.

The 1990s saw the King "rebound" just nicely, highlighted by him starring in the 1992 movie "Pure Country". While the movie wasn't exactly a box office smash, the accompanying soundtrack was a bonafide hit, selling over 6 million copies and becoming George's biggest selling album ever!

Here you go, my five favorite songs by my Parrain from the 1990s.
