Posted on

Georgestrait_l George Strait has been named the Academy of Country Music’s Artist of the Decade, and CBS will tape a tribute concert in Las Vegas on April 6 (the night after the ACM Awards) to air later this year. So far, Faith Hill, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Sugarland, Taylor Swift, and Keith Urban have been confirmed as performers. Which of Strait’s songs should they sing? My picks:

Faith Hill: “Today My World Slipped Away”
Toby Keith: “Round About Way”
Tim McGraw: “She’ll Leave You With a Smile”
Sugarland: “I Just Want to Dance With You”
Taylor Swift: “You Look So Good in Love” (she changes the “him”s  to “her”s)
Keith Urban: “Blue Clear Sky”
Faith Hill and Tim McGraw duet: “Carrying Your Love With Me”

Your turn.
