I love George Straight, there is no other voice in Country music that even comes close to his... well okay, Alan Jackson and Randy Travis are a close second and third but George owns my heart. The first time I saw Pure Country I thought my heart would break from the romance of it all. Tonight George is being honored as ACM's Artist of the Decade and no one deserves it more.
The show was a total blast, it was fantastic to see who all was there as performers ( kudos to Jamii Foxx well done !! ) The highlight was actually getting to see George sing, he preformed Ocean Front Property and then had all the performers who had done his work on stage join him for Troubadour which was fitting. I was so hoping that I would get to see him do Cross My Heart. That is in my humble opinion the single best country song of all time.
So here is a clip from the movie Pure Country, my favorite part. Now I am going to watch and cry my ever lovin eyes. Thank you George for the most romantic love songs ever, you are a peach of a man and I adore you.
