George Strait has more #1 hits than Healthcare.gov has glitches, so it should come as no surprise that, on this date in 1988, the King hit #1 on the Billboard Country Charts.

"If You Ain't Lovin' (You Ain't Livin')" was Strait's 15th #1 single, including his 8th consecutive release to reach the top spot.  The tune, a remake of a song written by Tommy Collins and turned into a #2 hit by Faron Young in 1954,  hit #1 on December 10th, 1988.  The song has been described more as "campy" than "country", but #1 is still #1.

Sooooo, which version do you like better?  Have a look/listen and judge for yourself.
