Added DiffLines:

* ChartDisplacement: Despite his massive catalog of #1 hits (44 on ''Billboard'', 60 on all industry charts), many keystone songs didn't make the summit anywhere, such as "The Fireman", "Marina del Rey", "Amarillo by Morning", or the Music/AlanJackson duet "Murder on Music Row" (although the latter is justified in that it was never a single). He's also had three #1 hits that have held on for five weeks: the first is the iconic "Love Without End, Amen", and the other two are "I've Come to Expect It from You" and "One Night at a Time", which are nowhere near as iconic as "I Cross My Heart", "Heartland", "Check Yes or No", "Write This Down", "Give It Away" etc.

Over time, "hat act" craze became a derogatory term due to so many of them flooding the 90s.market and becoming indistinguishable.

Added DiffLines:

* GenreAdultery: By and large, averted; rarely has George recorded in the pop-country vein. One early exception was his 1982 ballad, "Marina Del Rey," which he pulled off very well and is every bit a part of his playlist today. "El Rey", a mariachi song from ''Twang'' which Strait performed entirely ''en español'', is another rare exception.

* ProductionPosse: He has had nearly the same batch of session musicians (bassist Glenn Worf, drummer Eddie Bayers, steel guitarist Paul Franklin, guitarists Steve Gibson and Brent Mason, and fiddler Stuart Duncan) and the same producer (Tony Brown) on every album between ''Pure Country'' in 1992 and ''Love Is Everything'' in 2013. In addition, nearly every album dating back to his first has had at least one song written by Dean Dillon. ''Cold Beer Conversation'' broke the trend, as it was instead produced by his engineer Chuck Ainlay.

** He hated his first music video, for "You Look So Good in Love", so much that he asked that it be withdrawn from rotation. He has very rarely done a music video since.
