Our Review

George Strait delivering “She Let Herself Go,” a song of female empowerment, immediately tells you two things about Strait that set him apart: he has respect for his sizable female audience, and he has reached a point in his career where he is unafraid to subvert the macho cowboy persona. There are a handful of songs on Somewhere Down In Texas that portray an older, wiser Strait. Now 53, he can convincingly impart contented ballads like “You’ll Be There” and “Oh, What A Perfect Day.” At the same time, he has the depth of experience to pull off “By the Light of a Burning Bridge,” a remarkable account of regret. Still, Strait reminds us that some things never change. The title track and “Texas” add to his collection two more home state anthems, while “Ready For the End of the World” and “Good News, Bad News” are a pair of magnificent breakup songs from someone who by all rights should have long ago exhausted the form’s possibilities. Notwithstanding the nuance of his love songs, Strait still delivers the homespun wisdom of “If the Whole World Was a Honky Tonk” like a true-blood cowboy.

Customer Reviews

George Has Done It Yet Again (5 stars)
The latest of George Straits many albums, Somewhere Down In Texas, proves that George Strait still knows the true meaning of country. He is still kickin' and proves that he is still one of the best in the industry. I think that George still has more hits to come.

Better than ever (5 stars)
This is the best George has done in recent years, although everything he does is great. Another homerun for GS.

Strait to the top (5 stars)
If you love George Strait, and what self-respecting country fan doesn't, then you will love this album. It is full of the classic Strait sound that has kept George at the top all of these years. My personal favorite is 'if the whole world was a honky tonk', but to be honest, no song on the CD is bad. 99 cents a song is more than worth what you are getting out of this one.

Out of all the new country singers to emerge in the early '80s, George Strait stayed the closest to traditional country. Drawing from both the honky tonk and Western swing traditions, Strait didn't refashion the genres; instead, he revitalized them for a new decade. In the process, he became one of the most popular and influential singers of the decade, sparking...
