EDITORS’ NOTES

Decades after his biggest hits, this country tenor’s vulnerability can still choke you up. Soaked in weeping strings and pedal steel, almost every track laments lost love. On “When a Man Can’t Get a Woman off His Mind” he can’t sleep or stop calling her, while on “She Never Got Me Over You” he rejects the woman who helped him stop drinking. But he closes with “I’ll Find It Where I Can,” a rousing honky-tonker set in the saloon that’s his home away from home.
