With the help of producer Tony Brown, George Strait redefined his relationship to the contemporary country mainstream with this 1992 soundtrack album, which became the bestselling single release of his career. In the movie, Strait portrays a country star who walks away from the smoke and mirrors to get back to his down-home roots. The ballad "When Did You Stop Loving Me" is as pure country as it gets in this day and age, while "The King of Broken Hearts" and "Where the Sidewalk Ends" introduced Strait's audience to an exceptionally gifted songwriter named Jim Lauderdale. --Rick Mitchell

After the movie, when I purchased this soundtrack I realized what an excellent singer he was. His style of music hit home with me. I enjoy every song on this album. Each one stands alone as a very good song and they fit into the overall feel of the album to make a very good album. This album (showing my age) will go down as a classic.
To take this a step further, the album interested me enough to buy more music by this artist and I thought, why not go big? I bought the box set and was stunned to hear so many songs that I knew and had sung over the years that were actually George Strait and I never knew it. This is a big statement but with the vast amount of material that George has released I feel that this is his best. Although it may be because the movie holds a sentimental piece of my heart, it is also surely because the music stands on its own. If you are a country fan, you owe it to yourself to purchase this album. If you are a music fan, give it a try, you won't be let down.
It is hard to choose a couple weak songs on such a near-perfect album, but I might have to say Where The Sidewalk Ends and Thoughts. This is mainly based on Sidewalk being overplayed in the movie and a little too much all over the map in focus. Thoughts is a little too slow and simplistic.
It doesn't get much better than this.
