Conclusion

Pro-social Content

McGraw affirms his woman's value on "Wouldn't Want It Any Other Way." The country chart-topper "Don't Take the Girl" speaks of a man's self-sacrifice when faced with losing his love to outside forces. The title track alludes to the saving power of love.

Objectionable Content

On "Refried Dreams," the artist admits to being "sick as a dog" and "shootin' tequila, wantin' to kill" the woman who left him. "Ain't That Just Like a Dream" recalls a wild young romance. Although not explicit, "Down on the Farm" alludes to drinking and sexual situations in the context of a rowdy tailgate party. A clever tribute to the blues tunes of George Strait is spoiled by dependence on a bottle in a bar ("Give It to Me Strait"). "It Doesn't Get Any Countrier Than This" winks approvingly at immodesty and premarital sex.

Summary Advisory

This disc spent its first three months as a number-one country album, and several weeks atop the pop chart. Musically sound, but lyrically McGraw lives on the wild side, retreating into alcohol when times get hard.
