1. George Harvey Strait is an American country music singer. The native Texan is known for his honky tonk country western sound. Strait is sometimes referred to as the "King of Country" and some critics call Strait a living legend. He is well known for his unique style of western swing music, barroom ballads, honky-tonk style, and fresh yet traditional country western music.

    A member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Strait has been nominated for more CMA awards than any other artist. He holds the record for most Number 1 songs on Billboard Country Music charts and second on all charts behind Conway Twitty.

    Strait has had more albums certified gold or platinum in the United States than any other country artist and only Elvis Presley and The Beatles have more overall.

    Strait's first single, "Unwound", quickly became a Top Ten hit. This was followed by "Down and Out" and then a whole series of #1 singles, beginning with "Fool Hearted Memory" in 1982. Strait was one of the best-selling country singers of the 1980s, and one of the few from that decade who survived the influx of rock-country singers such as Garth Brooks in the early 1990s.

    His long-time producer Tony Brown, who has collaborated with Strait on more than 15 albums, attributes Strait's success to his understanding of what types of music work best for his voice and his fans, and his insistence on remaining true to his own style of music without trying to constantly reinvent himself.[3] His signature style consists primarily of hardcore honky-tonk and Western swing.[2]

    In 1995, Strait released a four-disc boxed set career retrospective. "Strait out of the Box" became the 2nd best selling box set ever with shipments of 8 million in the United States.

    On October 3, 2006, Strait marked his 30th year in the music industry with the release of a new album titled It Just Comes Natural. It contains 15 newly recorded songs using Strait's longtime friend and songwriter, Dean Dillon. The album received positive reviews from critics. People Magazine, in their four-star review, remarked that "If ever there was a natural in country music, it's Strait," while USAToday raved that "He continues to make such consistent quality look easy." The first single off the album, "Give It Away" reached #1 and the title track, "It Just Comes Natural (song)" became his 42nd Billboard #1. In 2007, "Wrapped" reached No. 1 on the Mediabase 24/7 country music charts, giving Strait his 55th overall number-one single.
    A Better Rain Lyrics
    Artist(Band):George Strait Review
    what do you say when love comes down on you
    Rainin' the blues on you
    Like it's never gonna end on you
    And all your dreams like leaves in the gutter go floatin' by
    No, Baby, I don't know why all God's children cry
    I'll miss your skin, wa golden as your wheatfield hair
    And where you go I hope you find out there

    Chorus:
    A better rain
    The kind that comes in off the coast and paints the sky
    And lets you know that God's alive
    A better rain
    That'll wash me from your eyes so you can smile again
    And be all right again
    In a better rain

    Someday is gonna find you in a sweeter place
    Long after time has erased
    All the words like razor blades
    You'll remember you and me before the flood
    Once upon a time in love, a beautiful us
    I can see you on some stretch of sand
    Spinnin' round in circles barefoot dancin' in

    Chorus:
    A better rain
    That'll leave behind a rainbow in the sky
    Lets you know that God's alive
    A better
    That'll wash me from your eyes so you can smile again
    And be all right again
    In a better rain

    A better rain
    That'll leave behind a rainbow in the sky
    Lets you know that God's alive
    In a better rain
    A better rain

  2. The Ramblers arrived on the first weekend of the 2011 Calgary Stampede; it was the same weekend Will & Kate lodged in the province and were also slated to appear in the Parade. Many Calgarians eagerly camped out the night before in order to secure their best vantage point or perfect photo op. However, it proved quite the disappointment when the Royal couple hurriedly scooted along the downtown thoroughfare in a covered sedan. Nonetheless, the Moonshine Ramblers would perform a set with the Bitterweed Draw in the heart of town that weekend and hand delivered the first country music performance during Stampede we could get behind since god knows when.

    The following afternoon was spent on the banks of the Bearspaw Dam. We could have never made this video without our friends Mark Collins and Angela Wolfe – they did the work of six people by hiking into the brush to meet us with plenty of firewood, refreshments and smokies. At around 3:30 in the video you can see smoke from the fire and hear their baby Hudson saying something or other in the background. This session was, for us, a homecoming of sorts with Alex Hastie (seen on guitar) – it was, after all, one of his songs that became the very first Welcome to the West video. That song is called Heavy Drinkin’ Woman and it also appears on the Moonshiner’s debut, which we staunchly endorse.
