George Strait has set a Billboard record.

The trade magazine said Tuesday that the country legend is the first act to hit the top 10 on any Billboard chart for 30 straight years.

The song that set the record was "I Gotta Get to You," which has reached No. 9 on Billboard's top country songs list.

Strait's first country top 10 hit was in 1981, with "Unwound," and he has cracked the top 10 every year since then. His latest hit is his 82nd top 10 country hit.
