While he's no "Progressive Country" rebel on the order of Steve Earle or Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Strait eschews the cheap, easy hook and vapid lyric in favor of a restrained, thoughtful approach, as shown on ONE STEP AT A TIME. Though he's not above upping the tempo, Strait's strength lies in the ballads that make up the bulk of this album.There are a few moments on ONE STEP AT A TIME where a tasteful electric guitar will leap to the forefront, but we're not talking Travis Tritt here, most of the songs are acoustic-based, and leave plenty of room for Strait's subtle, determined vocal delivery. He's got the cream of the country crop contributing songs, including Robert Earl Keen, Jim Lauderdale and John Prine, who cowrote one of the more memorable tunes, "I Just Want To Dance With You." Produced by Strait and Nashville institution Tony Brown, ONE STEP takes the legacy of this consistently listenable vocalist one step further.
