Cultural Index Thursday – The George Strait Edition

Remember when they used to play George Strait on the radio?

Remember when they used to play country music on the radio? ?

I saw last night where George Strait is going to perform the soundtrack to Pure Country in Las Vegas in a month or so. That’s one show that would be hard to pass up. Never mind the fact I’ve seen Straight in concert at least double-digit times over the years.

So, in honor of King George still being the King, here is this week’s Cultural Index Question.

What are your Top 5 George Strait songs of all-time? 

I know. I could have made it Top 20 and you’d be leaving a few of your favorites off the list.

So get after it kids, I’ve got to go. If I hurry I can still make Cheyenne. . .

    Obviously, all of us could make this a list of 100 or so ‘top’ songs. Some of his best songs were not released as singles, hence my top 2. I own every CD he’s ever made, except for the movie sound track. I didn’t care for those songs. Too pop country, which was the point of the movie. But on several greatest hits and box sets, I wound up with many songs from that movie.

  4. Hyatt,
    You could expand this to list George’s 5 best songs about:
    -Texas
    -drinking &/or bars
    -God / spirituality
    -divorce
    -Love
