12. I Saw God Today

“I Saw God Today” is probably one of the best singles in country music this year. A touching, introspective song, it must inspire whoever hears it. And the fact it was the fastest-rising single of his career to date can only underline the sentiment.”

11. If Heartaches Were Horses

“George Strait is by far and away the King of Country Music. Troubadour is our favorite song on this album but then ALL of George’s songs are my wife’s favorites.”

10. House of Cash

“House of Cash” is a tribute to the late and great Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash and their home on Hickory Hill Lake in TN that sadly burned down in April of 2007.”

9. West Texas Town

“George delivers a lil’ bit of Texas Swing in “West Texas Town” with some help from Dean Dillion. I know Dean has written several songs for George over the years but cannot remember which ones off the top of my head. Dig George’s “aawww” at the end. *melt*”

8. River of Love

“Seems like George has caught “beach fever” in his “River Of Love”! *wink* I don’t mind at all . . . for a little over 3 minutes folks like me livin’ in Yankeedom can imagine we have our toes in the sand! Great song, but I’m not sure if I liked the background vocals. Who knows, they may grow on me.”

“When You’re In Love” with it’s beautiful melody is my second favorite track on the album. I just love everything about it and I feel good when I hear it!”

3. Give Me More Time

“Give Me More Time” is a haunting song with a twist ending wrapped around the phrase “give me more time”…it’s one of the four songs co-written by Dean Dillon.”

2. Troubadour

“The title track “Troubador” probably best reflects where George is at in this stage of his life, which more than likely, is why it kicks off the album, right? *smirk* “I was a young troubadour when I rode in on a song and I’ll be an old troubadour when I’m gone.””

1. House With No Doors

“House With No Doors” is country ALL the way. A conversational song between Strait and a brokenhearted man. George Strait is by far and away the King of Country Music”
