Well, folks, that's just plain wrong!

Great classics like Carrying your Love With Me, One Night At a Time, and pretty much every song on this record are great country classics.

George's second in a row album of the year winner from both the ACM's & CMA's is deserving of the honor. Every track is a gem, but my very favorite is his remake of the old Vern Gosden hit "Today My World Slipped Away". No offense Vern, but George nails this one as no one else could!!! It makes me wish that George would re-record a lot of old favorites and make them his own!

This is a very touching set of songs. All of George Straits songs and albums are great but this one touched my heart especially. When my grandfather was taking his last few breaths of life in the hospic unit in Duluth, MN we turned the radio on to a country station because he had always liked country music. Well, when we turned it on, George Strait's "Today My World Slipped Away" came on and we listened to the whole song and both the song and my grandpa's life ended at the same time. It was really weird. So his world slipped away from him and I couldn't do anything about it to help him. I am so glad I have the hope of the ressurrection in the near future. With out that, My world would have probably slipped away as well because me and him were very close. I like all of George Strait's CD's but this one touches my heart especially because of that one song.

George Strait's Carrying Your Love With Me is a winning record. My favorite songs on here are the two initial singles, the romantic ballad "One Night At A Time" and the bouncy, optimistic title song "Carrying Your Love With Me". Another huge hit off this album was George's remake of Vern Gosdin's classic breakup song "Today My World Slipped Away". George stuck pretty close to Vern's original arrangement here and made his version of "Today My World Slipped Away" as good as Vern's, if not better. Bobby Braddock's song "The Nerve" starts out as a pretty straightforward song about a rekindled romance and goes deeper, dealing with the speaker's past and his ancestry. "A Real Good Place To Start" is a song about starting over with an old romantic flame after a breakup with someone else. "She'll Leave You With A Smile" has the same title as a song on George's current record The Road Less Traveled, but is a completely different song. On this record's version, the man is begging his friend not to get involved with the woman he(the speaker) just broke up with("Friend, you know she once was mine"), because the friend will be treated the same way he was. When the new relationship is over, says the speaker, "she'll leave you with a smile".
George does his usual country swing on the opening lost-love song "Round About Way", the romantic toe-tapper "That's Me Every Chance I Get", and the driving song "I've Got A Funny Feeling". All these songs are well-written and well-done. The song that prevents this album from getting five stars, in my opinion, is the honky-tonk song "Won't You Come Home And Talk To A Stranger".

I've heard many people say that since the mid-90's, King George has just been going through the motions, and not putting out anything more than a few good singles, and filler tracks. Well, folks, that's just plain wrong! To me, it sounds like, too many Country "fans" are just "going through the motions" and buying only newer artists, and leaving the classics behind. In 1997, I can think of only a handful of real quality CDs that could match the greatness that is 'Carrying Your Love With Me."
George seemed like he was very careful, and focused while selecting tracks for this one. They all work very well together, and at the same time, I would have accepted gladly, any of these songs as stand-alone singles.
While the album does boast a handful of hits, there are a few of the non-hits on here that really make the album special. Namely, a song called "She'll Leave You With a Smile." not to be confused with the single of the same name that Strait released a few years later. This song could make a top ten list from King George if i were to construct such a thing. His vocal delivery on the track is a powerful as I've ever heard it.
Also, the song "Wont You Come Home" is a classic-style honky-tonker from the man who does them better than anyone. A song that could have been released within Strait's first four albums, or even on one of his latest productions.
All in all, it's hard to put a ranking on this one in regards to all George's albums, since he has so much quality material out there to pick from, but when put up against its contemporaries, I defy you to find a better CD. As always, we know what to expect from Strait, and this is it... Strait COUNTRY!

Of all his CD's this one has the more great songs than any other - especially if you like to sing along. All the words to the songs are included. END
