George Strait

Last night, CBS aired a special tribute concert to George Strait in honor of his winning the Academy of Country Music's Artist of the Decade award.  The performances were all great, and I wish they would be made available to download.  Highlights included Toby Keith performing "Unwound" (which he mistakenly cited as Strait's "very first number one single;" it was his first single, but it peaked at #6), Brooks & Dunn with "The Cowboy Rides Away," Taylor Swift with "Run" and Jamie Foxx turning in an amazing r&b styled performance of "You Look So Good in Love."  "King" George himself performed "Ocean Front Property" before leading all performers in a show-capping rendition of his recent #1 single, "Troubadour."

To commemorate the milestone achievement, ten of his most popular hits have been grouped into an iMix on iTunes.  Each song is only 69 cents, or you can pick up the whole lot for just $6.90.  Not sure how long this reduced pricing will last, so click here and add to your library!  The songs are:
  1. "The Fireman"
  2. "All My Ex's Live in Texas"
  3. "Heartland"
  4. "Blue Clear Sky"
  5. "Unwound"
  6. "Ace in the Hole"
  7. "Carrying Your Love with Me (Edit)"
  8. "Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind (Live at the Astrodome)"
  9. "I Can Still Make Cheyenne"
  10. "The Chair"
Strait's latest single is "Living for the Night" from a forthcoming album titled Twang.  It is currently scheduled for a fall release.  I, for one, cannot wait!
