Geez, the guy is great. Again, I missed the whole country thing, until I got started with Brad Paisley not many years ago. John Lennon said something to the effect of "all Rock and Roll could just be called 'Chuck Berry'" and I think I'm having a discovery like that with George Strait, in that every modern country ballad (or at least the good ones) seems to have a little George Strait in them. I realize there were folks here before George Strait, but this guy is the master of the country ballad. Great voice, great songs. Loving it.
