Retro Single Review: George Strait, “Down and Out”

1981 | Peak: #16

With a fiddle section nearly as good as the one that powered “Unwound”, it’s easy to imagine this filling the honky-tonk floors just as quickly.

But unlike on his debut single, Strait’s dealing with a weaker lyric here.  He sings the fire out of it, but “Down and Out” is pretty generic stuff.
