Best Answer

George Strait has the most #1 hits at 57 and counting. Nobody else comes close. Conway Twitty actually had the most until 2006 with 55 #1 hits.

The Beatles are the musical act with the most songs to reach No. 1 on the Billboard singles chart. Mariah Carey has 18 such #1 hits and Elvis Presley 17.
