“OK, so how do I summarize everything I love about George Strait with just one album? Of course – a greatest hits record! I might have listened to this album more than anything else on this list, especially during the last 10 years. I listen to 50 Number Ones all the time.
“George is on my iPod, he’s on my phone – he’s just in my life. The Chair, It Ain’t Cool To Be Crazy About You, Nobody In His Right Mind Would’ve Left Her – so many amazing songs. A lot of them were written by Dean Dillon, whom I just idolize.
“What can you say about George Strait as a singer? He’s a legend. I’ve always loved Merle Haggard too, and to me, there’s a little bit of Merle in George Strait. What’s funny about George is that he’s definitely what you’d call a ‘traditional’ country singer, but he still sounds very current. He’s one of the all-time greats.”
