After spending a couple years honoring each of his albums individually, it is FINALLY time to go back and honor the best album tracks of George Strait's career, without any singles in the way to steal the spotlight! Similar to Reba's album series, we will be breaking up George's catalog by the decades. After ranking the album tracks from each decade of his career, we will do one final 'Championship' rankdown of the highest songs from each decade to determine which one is the overall Pulse Fave from his entire career.
I'm super excited to see how these turn out! George has so many great album tracks, but they are also not quite as buzzed about as some of the female artists' album tracks just because of where Pulse's fandom lies, so this whole series is ripe for surprises and hopefully lots of cool discoveries for people!

Let's have us our first reminder!!! We've got two quick submissions courtesy of myself and Tim, which was to be expected, lmao. The rest of you have about 2 1/2 weeks to jump on board
I know we've got Trisha's album tracks open right now, and Pam's is soon to be joining the mix as well... But this one has been open longer, and tbh is a stronger list than either of those, so.... Let's make it a priority!
Time for another reminder, 'cause these album tracks rds always sneak up quick! We have a new list courtesy of ClevelandRox . Hope to see many more coming soon We have just under two weeks left! I would prefer not to have to extend, because then it'll start encroaching on Trisha and Pam's album tracks rds! As it stands now, this one should be wrapped up in a cute little bow by the time those ones are fighting for your attention!
George Strait Junkie has joined the party!!! We are now down to just about 10 days left to get this done! (That's about 3 songs per day if you get started right now. If you're going to make me wait until the last minute anyway, you might as well be productive about it! )
Oh hey, thanks for bumping this! It's a good time for a reminder We are down to just one more week until the deadline. I would be willing to offer a little more time if anyone needs it, but I would also like this to be out of the way before Pam/Trisha's album tracks are due, so I can't extend it more than a few days. Let's see what the next week brings!
And castle makes five!!! We are now down to 5 days left until the deadline! Again, I would potentially be willing to offer a few more days if needed, but I also want to get this out of the way ASAP because there are quite a few larger rds fighting for space the next couple months. So work on it as you can I'm still hopeful we can get to 10 participants, looking at who has said they're working on it as well as how many regulars are still left!
We have our 6th person thanks to kw9461! It is time for the 2 day reminder!! This is due this Sunday! What better time to do a rankdown like this than on a nice sunny weekend like this! Seriously, just put on this playlist and go for a couple hour drive. It's the perfect way to do a George rankdown
I hope you're all having a good weekend so far! Here is another reminder, as this is now the one day warning to jump on in here if you want to join! It may not be closed tomorrow, because I am going to track down and make sure I get lists from everybody who has shown interest, but I'd like to close it tomorrow if at all possible
And here we are at our last call!!! Tonight I'm gonna start hunting some people down individually I know someone might need a couple extra days, which I am willing to do, but I'm still excited to see what today brings us!
