20, Blue Clear Sky (Blue Clear Sky, 1996)

“Hearing this led me — a person who had never listened to country music …. who couldn’t imagine myself listening to it with enjoyment — to explore all of George Strait’s albums and it’s an impressive body of work.  The man is a living legend.”

19. The Best Day (Latest Greatest Straitest Hits, 2000)

“This isn’t everything there is to George Strait, either.  His albums are consistently excellent, and if you only know the hits, you’re missing some great music.”

18. I Got a Car (Love Is Everything, 2013)

“Really like this song. It actually has a story to it and of course, George is a great singer and you can understand the words very clearly.”

17. Carried Away (Blue Clear Sky, 1996)

“Again, a solid album from the king of country music.  “Carried Away” is his best recording since Pure Country.  All I can say is just what you’d expect from this seasoned pro.”

16. Baby’s Gotten Good at Goodbye (Beyond the Blue Neon, 1989)

“Because Strait’s style doesn’t change much from album to album, his records rely heavily on decent songs, of which about three-quarters of the tracks here are.”

15. Run (The Road Less Traveled / Holding My Own, 2001)

“Run” is an instant country classic. Absolutely love it along with the rest of this album. Probably one of his most different albums which is EXACTLY what makes it sooo good.”

14. Ocean Front Property (Ocean Front Property, 1987)

“Pretty good country song although I must admit I don’t like the lyrics that much it’s the tropical sounding instruments that I like.”

13. Give It Away (It Just Comes Natural, 2006)

“George is so amazingly consistent, you could close your eyes and pick just about any CD out of his catalog, and it will be good. The difference between his best and worst work, is minimal. This is perhaps the ultimate compliment for an artist with over 25 albums in his catalog”

12. Wrapped (It Just Comes Natural, 2006)

“I’d consider this a bit of a return to form for King George, and although I’ve considered him more of a singles type of artist (look at all the #1’s he has), this album and Blue Clear Sky are both great albums that I enjoy.”

11. The Chair (Something Special, 1985)

“Great song as always from George. Great story line and even better guitar. George is getting better and better with age.”

10. Check Yes or No (Strait Out of the Box, 1995)

“George Strait is one country artist whose output is served very well by a box set. In other words, he’s released so many albums over the years that a casual George Strait fan would not want to invest in all of them.”

9. Here for a Good Time (Here for a Good Time, 2011)

“Cool organ intro on this cool new George Strait single which is a good time (who guessed) Honky Tonk shuffle. Somehow the lyrics are a bit darker with 60-approaching Straight facing his mortality (“I Ain’t Here for a long time..”) which is a bit of a weird mix but it worked with Joe Diffie’s “Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox” so why wouldn’t it work for the man? Not the greatest song ever, but a relaxed breath of fresh air in today’s Country from this veteran..”

8. Give It All We Got Tonight (Love Is Everything, 2013)

“Really like this song. It actually has a story to it and of course, George is a great singer and you can understand the words very clearly.”

7. I Hate Everything (50 Number Ones, 2004)

“Great song for divorcees and loners. Captures the emotions perfectly. George Strait makes real rhymes, not ones relying on vowel pronunciation. You won’t be disappointed. “

6. Amarillo by Morning (Strait from the Heart, 1982)

“This is his best song when I think of old 80s country this is the song that represents that decade. Hard deciding when it comes to George Strait, but I think this one comes out as his best song.”

5. Carrying Your Love With Me (Carrying Your Love with Me, 1997)

“Another excellent release from the king of modern country music! The title track is one of my all time favorites and overall this album is a must own for country music fans!”

4. I Cross My Heart (Pure Country, 2008)

“I have never been into any country music before until i saw a movie called pure country with george strait and i thought that it was an awesome movie. The music was great and strait’s performance was really good. I see country music in a whole different light now.”

3. Write This Down (Always Never the Same, 1999)

“I liked the music in this one, the music of the refrain, more than all the lyrics in total. I wish the lyrics were stronger. George Strait can make anything sound great!”

2. All My Ex’s Live In Texas (Ocean Front Property, 1987)

“I seem to recall a bit of lamentation around this song – “look what country has come to!” Now, of course, compared to what is being played on country radio, it sounds brilliant.”

1. Troubadour (Troubadour, 2008)

“George Strait: I don’t know how to describe his style except contemporary classic. He’s got a smooth, flowing voice that’s timeless. This is a good song. Rather reflective of his own life. Troubadour-Best song King George will ever do because it’s autobiographical about his own life!”
