Americans checked yes or no in a new poll of the most-loved country singers, and George Strait came out on top.
The King of Country has been ranked as the No. 1 most-loved country singer, according to the Harris Poll.
The “Here For A Good Time” singer also made the list of the most-loved singers in any genre, coming in at No. 5.
Garth Brooks is the only other country singer to make the list, which also includesLed Zeppelin, Beyonce, Elvis and the Beatles.
Following appearances on the list in previous years, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw and Alan Jackson did not rank in 2014.
The poll surveyed two thousand Americans this past July to determine the results.
