Every song on this CD is great and I guarantee you will enjoy it unless...

a. You think the word "Badonkadonk" belongs in a country song.

b. You think Cowboy Troy is anything but rap.

c. You consider Big & Rich country.

If you do not agree with any of the above statements you will love this CD. This is country at its best from a REAL COUNTRY SINGER.

George really goes out on a limb on this album and puts some big production in the back of his songs. But when you boil it down it still has the steel guitars and fiddles of all Strait songs. Put it down as you may but die-hard Strait fans, like myself, will totally enjoy this album and recommend to anyone who loves country music!

This album is a little more "Texas" than George's recent stuff. It starts with "If the Whole World Was A Honky Tonk" which is classic George. Then you have the title track that is along the lines of the slow tunes of the middle years. Track #3 "The Seashores of Old Mexico" was written by one of his biggest influences, Merle Haggard. "You'll be there" has already received well-deserved acclaim. "Good News, Bad News" a duet with LeAnn Womack (his first duet with a female recording artist, I think?) is enough to have anyone throw themselves off a bridge -- George Jones/Tammy Wynette come to mind. "Oh What a Perfect Day" is another track that would fit comfortably on past almbums such as Ocean Front Property. Fittingly "Texas" may be the best track on the album. It's hard to imagine any country artist today that's more Pure Country. Another outstanding effort. You can't be at the top this long unless you have this level of consistency.

First of all i want to say that i like Big and Rich, I like a few songs of cowboy troys...now on to this album....

I am a huge George Fan. I did find some of his other albums weak but this is NOT one of them. From the first song...IF the whole world was a honky tonk...to the last one By the light of a burning bridge this album had me. Its an album that i wont get sick of hearing. He is true to George...from his slow southern songs that make you think hes singing to you..to his up beat tempos that make your toes tap...to his almost sounding autobiographical song Texas....to the song that pulls and tugs at your heartstrings this album is one that i highly recommend to any and every George fan. Hes come along way....and he is here to stay. And we are all the better for having bought this CD. Enjoy.

George Strait may be the only one country singer who can have me purchased his new album right away with a tune unheard! And his works have never disappointed me. His new album, Somewhere Down In Texas, is one of the greatest country albums in the past 2-3 months for me. It's a pity because I'm Thai and there's no way I can see his live show here in Thailand. Never mind, I can have him anytime at my living room performing great stuff just for me. Where the hell did I put his DVD concert?

He hits it deep and it is gone. This is another home run by George Strait. Listening to the entire CD makes me wonder if this is his last one. Somewhere Down in Texas may be the song he takes into the sunset. The same one he says he will watch from his porch in Texas. Nothing needs to be said for You'll be There because it is all in the song. I believe his theme song just may be Texas. Bad News, Good News is a wonderful duet with Lee An Womack. If this is his last one he goes out big.

Sometimes, country music fans--and the industry--wait a little too late before they realize when a giant is in their midst. It's time to recognize that even though he's not grey-bearded and stooped with age, George Strait is such a giant.

This CD provides yet more evidence of his mastery of the genre. As a vocalist, he is immediately recognizable and as welcome as hot coffee on a chilly early morning. The way he can wrap heart, soul, and vocal chords around a heartbreaking lyric is a wonder to behold. And, when he sings about issues close to his heart, the listener gets a glimpse of the true soul of the man.

"Somewhere Down in Texas," "The Seashores of Old Mexico," and "Texas" all feel close to home for Strait, and he really delivers with a sense of familiarity and fondness for his subject matter. Only the hardest of hearts could resist "You'll Be There" and Strait's sincerely moving delivery.

Lee Ann Womack, continuing her trek back to all things country, adds her lovely and powerful voice on the duet, "Good News, Bad News." Classic country themes and smart lyrics are highlighted on "If the Whole World Was a Honky Tonk" and "By the Light of the Burning Bridge." And, you've got to hand it to Strait...few singers can let a good lyric do its work as well as Strait can.

So, to sum up: here's another classic, indespensible CD from a man who has given us many of them. Long may he reign!

No, this won't go down as one of George Strait's best CD's. While a few of the songs really are terrific (the smash autobiographical title song hit for sure), most are not that memorable. But when the performer is one of the best male voices on the air; one who's humble persona and clean-cut life just begs for adulation; it takes little more than "nice" to be just fine for eleven new songs that by and large entertain. In addition to the great title cut, his duet with Lee Ann Womack is outstanding, even if she does steal the show by singing her heart out on a true country ballad for a change instead of trying to cross-over into Faith or Shania pop territory. We just wish there had been more than just the one phrase in two-part harmony by these two, in what is an awfully short story song.

Other fun cuts include the lead song "If The Whole World Was A Honky Tonk"; "The Seashores Of Old Mexico"; the clever lyrics of "She Let Herself Go"; and the visionary "Ready For The End Of The World". While the other songs might seem more like filler, filler from George Strait is still pretty darn good. We suspect this CD will be quite successful - while maybe not one of his barnburners, still a very likable addition to his collection! Enjoy...
