George Strait "Somewhere
Down in Texas"
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.
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.
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.
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
album was recently #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
It marked Strait's 20th debut at the top position.
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.
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.
