King George Still Rules

This is George Strait's 26th album for MCA Nashville. Twenty-four of the

previous 25 have gone platinum, and this collection of recent hits explains

why he's had such an unprecedented run. The two new cuts on Latest

Greatest Straitest Hits confirm his song-selection smarts. "The Best

Day" (RealAudio

excerpt) was an immediate radio hit and "Murder on Music Row"

(RealAudio

excerpt) — on which Alan Jackson duets — shows why

Strait continues to be the conscience of country music.
