George Strait’s “Drinkin’ Man” Packs An Emotional Punch

George Strait paired with a drinking song is a match made in honky tonk heaven. The most recent single from the Texas legend – from his current album Here For Good Time – is a rueful tale of alcohol addiction that does its best to drive home the reality alcoholics face on a daily basis. Strait, playing the role of a lifetime boozer, recounts his first drink in his early teens on up into adulthood where even the love of a good woman couldn’t break the chains of addiction.
