Well, isn't this interesting, Heather Myles covering George Strait...

...or maybe it was Jim Lauderdale, at Willie's Place, Sirius Ch. 64: "Stay out of my arms, take my advice, it's easy to break the same heart twice..."
Written and first recorded by the great Jim Lauderdale, the Texas shuffle "Stay Out Of My Arms" was also recorded by George Strait on his 1993 album Easy Come, Easy Go. I don't know if the Jim Lauderdale version is still in print, but it'd be interesting to know if it was George's rendition that influenced Myles' cover. Either way though, it was great. Heather Myles is another one of those folks that could sing something from just about any genre and make it sound country. Good, good stuff.
