I really love the cry
or whatever that hangs in the voices of Patsy Cline, George Jones, Tammy Wynette, and Reba McEntire. I really dig that teardrop/crying effect. It’s so beautiful.
“I just kind of like songs that … have a little humor in them, “The Fireman,” “Oceanfront Property.” You know, I like those kind of songs. And I think I got some of that from being influenced by George Jones so much. … Occasionally he would throw one out there that was funny and had a little humor in it. So I thought, ‘Well, if George can do it, you know it must be the right thing to do. I’ll do it, too.” —George Strait
