George Strait, Here for a Good Time
* * * ½ (out of four) COUNTRY
The country great may not be contemplating retirement, but his latest finds him uncharacteristically reflective, covering Jesse Winchester's A Showman's Life and directly addressing his fans in I'll Always Remember You. Still, after 30 years, Strait hasn't lost his touch for finding astonishing material like Drinkin' Man, which may have the scariest second line of any country song ever written.
