This is the one we’ve been waiting for.
Well okay – I know I’ve been waiting for this song for a long time. I’m sure a few George Strait fans out there have been waiting as well. In fact I know quite a few of you out there have been waiting because one of the most popular search terms coming to CML over the past month has been “George Strait New Song 2011”.
Well the new song for 2011 is here.
Listen to Here For a Good Time from George Strait…
Here For a Good Time – George Strait
That is classic George Strait.
Just the other day I was listening to George’s 50 Number Ones. Nearly every song on both CDs is a great song. In fact, there are some uptempo tracks back from George’s days in the late ’80s and early ’90s that really were rocking and got your feet tapping. That’s the kind of feeling I get with Here For a Good Time.
For 30 years George has been putting out songs that race to the top of the charts. I’m sure this one is heading for yet another top song. It has all the ingredients – fun lyrics, fun melody, and of course the smooth country vocals of country’s top artist of all time.
Yep – in my mind that is exactly what George Strait is – the biggest country music artist of all time. For so many years he’s been the best. He consistently gains new fans every year with each song release.
Here For A Good Time is a hit song. It reminds me of the music I used to listen to on the hunting ranch with my dad, my uncle, and all the guys. We’d sit around playing cards as the country station played all the classics and all the latest hits. George was always at the top of the playlists.
And now George has done it again.
There is no stopping him.
