This is very good. Learned to 2-step to this cd.
Great duet with Alan Jackson

"If for no other reason, this is a good CD because of the duet with Alan Jackson called "Murder on Music Row." If you're like me and feel like Nashville systematically snuffed the life out of real country music in the last 10 years, you'll love this song. If you think Shania and Garth are what country music is all about, you won't get the message at all."
Country Music for True Country Fans

"This CD contains many of George's Straits recent hits, and the past few years have proven to be among the best of his overall strong career. Two new songs are also included. "The Best Day" is an ode to the family relationship told from a loving son to his father. However, the other new cut is unquestionably the collection's most piquant and potentially polemical. "Murder on Music Row" is a traditional sounding jeremiad that decries much, if not most, of what presently passes as country music. Without naming any names, it is pretty obvious to true country fans who the suggested culprits are. Making this allegation even more powerful, the song is a duet with Alan Jackson-another bona fide country singer-and features background vocals by Lee Ann Womack who has also earned that distinction.It should be called, "Attempted Murder on Music Row" because as long as George Strait is still making music, country music will be alive and well. Also when rounding up suspects, they should start by checking for Garth Brooks' fingerprints. Next Shania Twain's alibi should be verified and the authorities may also want to investigate the whereabouts of Faith Hill, Tracy Lawrence, the Dixie Chicks, and some of those other caterwauling crooners who have infiltrated Nashville and have gotten their songs to pollute the airwaves of so called "new country" radio stations. Once those perps are rounded up and the radio starts playing the Branson bunch again, there will no need for songs like that machination anthem that highlights these latest, greatest, and Straitest hits, but George Straits music will always have a welcome place on country radio."
THE BEST HITS ALBUM EVER!

"This is my favorite cd I own, and the Road Less Traveled cd is #2. My favorite song EVER is "Blue Clear Sky" with the lyrics and the catchy music, I heard it when I was like 8 years old and I actually knew the lyrics to the song!Bob DiPiero has written so many great hit songs, but this one is the best!"True" is another great song! The lyrics again are mastered and the music is terrific!"Best Day" is another Father/Son Song penned by GS and tells about the son's life with fishin'/drivin'/ and gettin' married'.
Things I wish I did more often with my far away dad."Murder On Music Row" is one of the most inspiring song I ever heard. I always said that many country artists have turned to the pop charts and murdered country music on murder row! This song tells how someone committed murder to country music and we're not really sure who did it. This song is a traditional country song with the use of the STEEL GUITAR and the FIDDLE.
I love how Strait and Alan Jackson attack this ongoing problem.
Leeann Womack does great on the vocals!"Carrying You Love with Me" is a classic! "Adalida" is a upbeat Cajun melody with unforgettable singin' by George.
"Lead On" tells a story of how people lead you on, pretending like they love you.
"Carried Away" is a great song with unbeattable music!
"We Really Shouldn't Be Doing This" shows the Elvis in Strait's voice and a great song also.
"I Can Still Make Cheyenne" is a great story of a Rodeo Cowboy who is always gone so his grilfriend is going to leave him but he says he'll leave right now and speed to Wyoming.
I like "King Of The Mountain". It has a very classic traditional country sound and is very catchy.
"Round About way" is a very underreated song with an uptempo music sound in it.
"You Can't Make A Heart Love Somebody" has very memorable lyrics and is a song that contradicts other propasal song by saying 'No' to the 'Will you marry me?'"One Night At a Time" isn't my favorite but has very catchy music and words
"Today My World Slipped Away" is okay, definitely not my favorite, I find it too slow but you may enjoy it.These are the reasons why you should by this GREAT CD! It Has Strait's latest hits but sadly doesn't include the
#1 hit "I Just Want To Dance with You"
Strait will ALWAYS be the all time greatest country KING of country music, who has stayed country throughout his career!"
GEORGE IS "KING" AND GEORGE IS "THE MAN" OF COUNTRY MUSIC

"GEORGE IS "PURE COUNTRY" IN MY BOOK. I HAVE BEEN A STRAIT FAN FOR MANY YEARS. THERE ISN'T A SONG OF HIS THAT I DON'T LIKE. HE IS CALM, COOL, AND MOST OF ALL "COUNTRY" ALL THE WAY. I WENT TO A CONCERT OF HIS IN PITTSBURGH AND HE IS AWESOME! ALL HE HAS TO DO IS WALK OUT ON THAT STAGE AND HIS FANS GO NUTS! I LOVE THE MAN AND ALL OF HIS MUSIC, ESPECIALLY THE DUET WITH ALAN, THIS SONG WILL BE THE DUET OF ALL TIME."
