iTunes Editors’ Notes

George Strait was one of the few new country singers in the ‘80s who stuck close to the music’s traditions. He proved there was still an audience hungry for the classic country sound and laid the groundwork for folks like Dwight Yoakam and Randy Travis in the process. He’s recorded consistently and frequently, proving after 30 years he can still find the pathos necessary to convey simple, honest truths. His upbeat tunes are joyous and convincing. Al Anderson’s “Love’s Gonna Make It Alright” and the title track, written by Strait and his son, Bubba, kick things into overdrive. However, Strait settles into quite a few ballads and mid-tempos. “House Across the Bay” has a slow-dance romanticism to its sorrow of love gone wrong. “Drinkin’ Man” and “Poison” show the flipside of the party life. There’s gospel (“Three Nails and a Cross”), there’s country-rock (“Blue Marlin Blues”) and there are striking covers of Delbert McClinton’s “Lone Star Blues” and, especially, Jesse Winchester’s “A Showman’s Life.”

More fond Memories with George!

Growing up my dad listened to country music and I have fond memories of being woken up at 5:30 in the morning to George Strait’s music playing on his alarm clock radio. It was a great way to start the day. I’m glad George continues to put out great music.
If you like discovering new music on iTunes check out “It’s All Because of You” Tyler Barham and “Too Tennessee” Chris Lane Band.

King George still reigns Country Music!!

This is what country music is about. Not that crap that is played on the radio now. Glad to see him hold true to the Troubadour that he is. Long Live the King!
