Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - p.63
3 stars out of 5 -- "TROUBADOUR is up to the usual standards, maybe better. There's witty, swaggering honky-tonk and the requisite hot-fiddle swing number."
Paste (magazine) (p.69) - "[W]ith TROUBADOUR, he throws in a couple of delectable curveballs -- like the Caribbean twinkle of 'River of Love' and the rock edge of 'House of Cash'..."

The last country New Traditionalist standing, the tireless George Strait was still churning out solid, roots-conscious fare like TROUBADOUR on a regular basis after more than a quarter-century on the job. The title track casts a wistful look back while declaring the singer's intention to keep forging ahead. Aided by Patty Loveless, Strait sings the praises of Johnny and June on the moving elegy "House of Cash," while "Make Her Fall In Love With Me Song" is the kind of tune that could have been pumping out of a honky-tonk jukebox when Strait was still the new kid on the block. His lifelong love affair with Western Swing gets an airing here on the sprightly Dean Dillon duet "West Texas Town." At an age when some singers might think about slowing down, Strait sounds like he's just picking up speed on TROUBADOUR.
