On HONKYTONKVILLE, George Strait continues to provide a beacon of light for those who despair of 21st century country's shift towards generic pop. The title track itself could easily have fallen off of Merle Haggard's pickup truck, and in a similar spirit, the churning roadhouse romp "Honk if You Honky Tonk" would sound equally at home on a George Jones record. Strait is an interpreter (and a fine one), not a writer, and he taps some of the hippest songmen in the country game (including Jim Lauderdale, Bruce Robison, and Monte Warden) for the uniformly high-quality material to which he lends his lungs here. "Tell Me Something Bad About Tulsa" could be a country cousin of Tom T. Hall's classic "That's How I Got To Memphis," and the clever "Four Down and Twelve Across" explores that long-standing overlap between country and soul. Strait is a lifetime resident of HONKYTONKVILLE, but anyone who loves tradition-minded country is invited for a visit.
