“You will always be the miracle that makes my life complete. And, as long as there’s a breath in me, I’ll make yours just as sweet.” From the “Pure Country” soundtrack, the song “I Cross My Heart” was Strait’s first single release off the album, and one that many a fan can sing word-for-word without the aid of a lyric sheet. However, the verbiage itself is caring, respectful, and rings true for those who are in love. You’ll never hear George Strait singing about how drunk he got on the beach with his buddies, leaving his wife to fend for herself at a local bash…but then to each, their own. No matter what he sings, or says for that matter, his fans admire and appreciate him for it.
