While hundreds of singers have come and gone since George Strait started, the singer's remarkable run of chart hits has been aided handsomely by his uncanny ability to pick out hit singles. Ol' King George has scored 54 #1 hits and numerous other Top 10 hits through the years and they keep on comin’. After the touching "I Saw God Today," rose to the top of the charts, George and MCA chose to release the title track of his 25th studio album, "Troubadour." Written by Monty Holmes and Leslie Satcher, the song seems like it was tailor-made for King George due to its lyric about being an older man who still feels as young as he ever did singing to the fans. It's a well-written ode to the aging, touring musician who proclaims "I was a young troubadour when I rode in on a song and I'll be an old troubadour when I'm gone." It is a classic-sounding track from a timeless artist and is masked in a timeless melody and all of this has helped make the song one of 2008's best country singles.
