You need to listen to more real honky tonky (and more George Strait) if you think he's not. I love it when people try to slag modern country when they really don't know anything about. I've been listening to country music my whole life (all old and new) and George Strait's songs are great and so is his singing. If you want pop country go listen to Carrie Underwood but as far as someone who's continuing the honky tonk tradition today you don't have to look any farther than Strait (or Alan Jackson for that matter.)
Instead of George Strait, can I listen to: The Derailers, The Hollisters, Dwight Yoakam, Dave Insley, Kelly Willis, Lyle Lovett, Dale Watson, Billy Joe Shaver, or a shit load of others?
Not Toby Keith, though, Thanks.
Oh, and Alan Jackson sucks too.
