Fans Reveal Their Favorites For George Strait
The Road Less Traveled is, without a doubt, an album worth celebrating 19 years on. Strait’s prolific career has resulted in dozens of albums. And TRLT is, shockingly, his twenty-first studio album. Strait and MCA Nashville cut the record in 2001. It went Certified Platinum that same year, solidifying Strait’s staying power over twenty albums into his career.
In turn, what about those favorites?
