Mmm....more classic George Strait... Willie's Place, Sirius Ch. 64: "....but I wonder now, if it makes a difference, does Fort Worth ever cross your mind...?"
Three years after he first hit the charts, Strait was on a roll; "Does Ft. Worth Ever Cross Your Mind" was his fourth consecutive No. 1 record and the very first No. 1 hit of 1985, the title track from the album that went on to be the CMA's 1985 Album of the Year. Of course it still would have been great without all that success and recognition...more than 20 years later, it still sounds good. If I had to pick one George Strait album to take to the desert isle with me, that'd be the one.
