OK, I'll say it: I liked Dusty's ponytail. You know -- his long hair and scruffy beard before he ditched the overproduced showbiz stage and opted for the simpler life. I'm not saying he shouldn't have made any changes, but... never mind. Did you know this cheesy, wonderful classic turned 25-years-old this year? Did you also know the scene where George Strait plays a stripped down, acoustic version of 'I Cross My Heart' still causes otherwise rational adults to crumple into piles of shivering tears? Oh, that's just me...
Music by Grammy nominee Steve Dorff and lyrics by Grammy nominee John Bettis. Based on the 1992 movie starring George Strait.
