Pickin' on George Strait, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ronnie D. Lankford
George Strait fans seem to appreciate the fact that he stays a little closer to his roots than some of the other new country stylists. CMH thinks so too. While a number of country legends only get "picked on" once in CMH's instrumental series, the neo-traditionalist receives a second shot with Pickin' on George Straight, Vol. 2. And since Strait has over a decade worth of hits, there's no shortage of material. There are favorites, like "Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind" and "King of the Broken Hearts," and romantic fare like "You're Something Special to Me." The countrified arrangements are fairly straightforward, more concerned with melody than fancy picking. ...

George Strait fans seem to appreciate the fact that he stays a little closer to his roots than some of the other new country stylists. CMH thinks so too. While a number of country legends only get "picked on" once in CMH's instrumental series, the neo-traditionalist receives a second shot with Pickin' on George Straight, Vol. 2.

There are favorites, like "Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind" and "King of the Broken Hearts," and romantic fare like "You're Something Special to Me." The countrified arrangements are fairly straightforward, more concerned with melody than fancy picking. Steel guitars and fiddles add a touch of Western swing to pieces like "Stay out of My Arms" and "Big Ball's in Cow Town," while the bouncy guitar of "Straight 8 Strut," a CMH original, fits in just fine with the other material. While the Pickin' On series usually sticks to instrumentals, a vocal is added to "Murder on Music Row," an ode to the good old days when steel guitars and drinking songs dominated country music. For Strait fans, or anyone who enjoyed volume one, Pickin' on George Strait, Vol. 2 should fit the bill.
