One of his seemingly endless No. 1 hits, George Strait‘s 2008 release of “I Saw God Today” became an instant classic from the moment it hit the radio waves and stole the hearts of listeners all over the world.
The powerful and inspiring song became Strait’s 56th No. 1 hit and succeeded a record previously set by fellow country legend, Conway Twitty. In addition to iconic chart progress, this song also earned Single of The Year at the CMA Awards and was nominated for a Dove Award for Country Recorded Song of the Year.
Critics praised Strait’s dazzling vocals on the song, and fans snapped up copies of the single and the album like wildfire. This is yet another shining example of why he’s continually heralded as the ‘King of Country” and continues to sell out shows in a matter of minutes.
During this performance for the world and his peers on his birthday, you can hear the emotion through his voice and see his eyes well up singing about the Lord in a performance that will surely bring you to your knees!
