George Strait is royalty in Texas, not least because he possesses an uncanny knack for distilling nearly every strand of Texas music tradition into one very appealing package. For nearly 20 years Strait has recorded some of the best boot-scootin' Texas swing, country blues, and creamy ballads of country's modern era. On BLUE CLEAR SKY he comes up with arguably his most solid collection to date. The rockin' title cut is ear-deep in hooks, and "Carried Away" finds Strait in his best romantic balladeer mode; it's the kind of tune that scores of hat acts have been trying to match. Likewise, "Rockin' in the Arms of Your Memory" is the pledge of a married man who finds his wife more beautiful every day; small wonder Strait is also country's top matinee idol. Even when he picks up the tempo on the swinging "I Ain't Never Seen No One Like You," Strait shows the kind of stylistic restraint that has made him a master of his trade.
