It Just Comes Natural

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: George Strait; Producer (group): MCA Nashville; Status: In Season

Strait doesn’t let his sex-symbol status preclude playing a cuckold in ”She Told Me So,” an obscure old George Jones LP track that appears on his latest disc, It Just Comes Natural: ”Each night she thanks God for the day she found me/Why, when she came home this morning, she told me so.” Ouch! Just as grand, in a sad-sack way, is his current No. 1 country single, ”Give It Away,” where he’s so disgusting to his departing ex, she doesn’t even want half their joint assets. Strait only sometimes gets the girl — as in his cover of Bruce Robison’s besotted ”Wrapped” — but he always gets the hit.
