George Strait: The Top 6 Coolest Songs
George Strait is getting ready to wrap up his touring career. The Cowboy Rides Away tour wraps up in his hometown of San Antonio, Texas on June 1st. While that is going on, he just released his 28th studio album Love Is Everything!
Love Is Everything was produced by longtime collaborator, Tony Brown. The two have built a winning formula that has seen George release albums for 32 years.
Now, you have to know, George is not a talker. Heck, he doesn’t even give interviews! What he does is entertains.
Since he speaks through his music, I put together my top 6 coolest King George songs for you. Comment with your picks for this list too!
You Look So Good In Love
This is a knee melting ballad that earned him countless female fans’ hearts. It was number 1 in 1983.
In 1985, George was a storyteller. First came the fun and cheeky “The Fireman” and then, as only George can do, he switched gears for this cute pick up line song. It was a big number 1.
This is a fun tip of the hat to Cajun Louisiana. I learned some geography in this one. Pontchartrain is a lake just outside of New Orleans. This was a rare non-number 1 for Strait. It only reached number 3 on the charts.
Blue Clear Sky
Blue Clear Sky was a big number one song in 1996. His album of the same name scored Album of the year honors at the CMA’s and George was named Male Vocalist. He also picked up song honors for “Check Yes Or No.” This song helped me get through some difficult times because of its positive message.
Give It Away
George Strait’s biggest song in the 2000’s was this one. His great performance of this song earned Song of the Year honors with writers Jamey Johnson and Bill Anderson at the 2007 CMA Awards. I was there and it beyond a thrill to congratulate him afterwards. I am truly a fan, first and foremost.
Living and Living Well
George is not just a storyteller. His songs have good life advice inside. This is a great example and another song that helped me stay positive in bad times. It hit number 1 in 2002.
