We gave it a B+

George Strait’s latest, Somewhere Down in Texas, is so Texas-centric that when, in the heavenly ”You’ll Be There,” he sings, ”I’ll see you on the other side,” you might imagine he means Oklahoma, not the afterlife. He employs as duet partner fellow Texan Lee Ann Womack, who regretfully tells him in the best cut, ”Good News, Bad News,” that he’s about to become a lone(some) star. More good news: Strait’s 33rd CD is as solid as Nos. 32, 31, et al., even if not every song is Alamo-level memorable.
