Overview

The title track to It Don't Get Any Better Than This has George lamenting contemporary country and celebrating classic country with a bunch of pals -- Merle, Waylon, Willie, Bobby Bare, "Johnny Counterfeit" -- thereby providing the emotional touchstone for the entire album. Discounting the overly clean production, the album makes no concessions to contemporary country -- it's a honky tonk record, filled with steel guitars and fiddles. George even revives an old hit, "When Did You Stop Lovin' Me," which fits right into this collection of traditionalist country. It's not a bad record by any means, and George is in surprisingly good voice, hardly sounding like a man approaching his 70th birthday. Still, there's no truly great performances or unusual songs to make it worth putting on after the initial play.
