Comment:

When you've got a George Strait-sized career, trust us, great tunes are gonna find you. But George has also reached back — sometimes [i]decades[/i] — to shine his light on songs that were once done [i]so right[/i]. Country Music Hall of Famer George Jones nurses the dregs of "a bottle that's destroyin' all hopes and cares" in the booze-soaked sorrow of "The Honky Tonk Downstairs," a song Strait's Ace in the Hole band cut at their first-ever session. Guy Clark lays down a floor-scuffing Western-swing shuffle underneath "Heartbroke," pickin' and grinnin' — and pleadin' — his way through the train wreck of one more breakup. But if you want a PhD in Johnnie Walker wisdom, give a listen to Faron Young's corn-mash counsel in "If You Ain't Lovin' (You Ain't Livin')": "You ain't so well-to-do/unless you get a little coochie-coo." Truer words were never spoken, let alone sung. But that's not all — from John Prine to Patsy Cline, from Gene Autry to Elvis Presley, these are the artists who sang 'em like nobody else ever could . . . until George came along.
