New Music Reviews

George Strait "Somewhere Down in Texas"

by Jason Rzucidlo
americajr@americajr.com

George Strait has 51 number one singles. This new album features the song "You'll Be There" which is a hit on country radio. It is track two on the album Somewhere Down in Texas. Strait was born and raised in Texas. He was the son of a teacher who also owned the family ranch.

The album includes the hit song "You'll Be There" which has been flying up the country charts. Its a tune about traveling to heaven. The lyrics go: So if you're up there watching me, would you talk to God and say Tell him I might need a hand to see you both someday. Oh my, my.

"Good News, Bad News" is a duet with Lee Ann Womack. The song is so slow that I don't think it will ever go anywhere. You can hardly hear it and it's hard to understand what they're saying.

Song number eight is dedicated to "Texas." It tells you what life would be without Texas. We wouldn't have the Alamo, Cowboys football team or Willie Nelson. There could be no Rio Grande or anything. It really goes to show how important the state is to our country.

This album was recently #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. It marked Strait's 20th debut at the top position.

One song that I think will definitely be a hit is track one. It's a tune called "If the Whole World was a Honky Tonk." It's really a fun song. He says Wouldn't have to pay no tax. Just set a tip jar in the back. If we ran low we'd pass the hat. I bet we'd all be in the black.

Overall, it's a pretty good album. It's got about three songs that I can see becoming hits. It has a lot of slow songs if you like ballads. I like faster paced songs myself. Look for it in music stores everywhere.
