Editors’ Notes

While it doesn’t quite have the impact of the previous year’s Blue Clear Sky, Carrying Your Love With Me displays George Strait’s ability to deliver a diverse, quality collection of songs even as he approaches his 20th year of recording. “Carrying Your Love With Me,” “She’ll Leave Your With a Smile,” and “Today My World Slipped Away” combine emotional climaxes with catchy choruses, proving that Strait is a master of the modern country ballad. “Won’t You Come Home (And Talk to a Stranger)” and “That’s Me (Every Chance I Get)” are perfectly crafted and resolutely old-school slices of honky-tonk, while the splendid “I’ve Got A Funny Feeling” is the kind of song that makes you wish Strait would make an all-bluegrass album. As usual, the magic isn’t only in the material, but how it’s delivered. Every song rings with a maximum of conviction and sincerity, yet everything Strait does has a low-key, easygoing air about it. The secret to Carrying Your Love With Me, and Strait’s career in general, is his ability to remain humble and his refusal to sing any song he doesn’t believe with his whole being.

Customer Reviews

A Gem Among Stones

"Carrying Your Love With Me" truly deserved its CMA for Album of the Year. It topped both the Billboard Country Album chart and the prestigious Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, producing three #1 hits: the rollicking, clever "Round About Way"; the heart-wrenching divorcee's lament "Today My World Slipped Away"; and the classic, traditionally affable title track, which I consider one of the top twenty country songs of all time. Most definitely worth your money. Although George's track record of excellence has created a high bar for his produce to match, this ranks among his best.

Out of all the country singers to emerge in the 1980s, George Strait stayed the closest to traditional country. Drawing from both the honky tonk and Western swing traditions, Strait didn't refashion the genres; instead, he revitalized them. In the process, he became one of the most popular and influential singers of the era, sparking a wave of neo-traditionalist singers from Randy Travis and Dwight Yoakam to Clint Black, Garth Brooks, and Alan Jackson. Strait was born and raised in Texas, the son...
