22 More Hits is George Strait's 2007 compilation CD, comprising hits that did not reach Number One (except for "She Let Herself Go") on the country charts, from his 1981 debut single "Unwound" to his most recent single at the time of the album's release, "How 'bout Them Cowgirls". The collection is intended as a companion to 50 Number Ones, a 2004 compilation which featured all of Strait's singles that had reached #1 to that point.
