George Strait, “Wrapped”
I’ve been underwhelmed by the singles from Strait’s It Just Comes Natural set so far, but there’s no quicker way to get back on my good side than covering Bruce Robison. Strait returns to the same Robison album that contained “Desperately” and turns the title cut into an instantly classic Strait tune. He turns in a fantastic vocal performance, making Robison’s original sound darn near pedestrian in comparison. I would love to hear a Strait album just of Austin songwriters. If this song is any indication, he’d knock it out of the ballpark.
