Strait had a press thing at Gruene Hall the other day and I finagled my way in. I had never seen a George Strait concert before, crazy huh? Seen the Scorpions three times though. I was glad I waited to see the Gruene show - truly spectacular and a simple reminder of why we love him. No explosions, no later beams. Just great songs and a singer who exudes class.
Nobody is better at picking songs than George Strait, which is why it was so incredible when he recorded a couple of my songs. But those songs he performed at the show, "Marina del Ray" and "Amarillo by Morning" and "The Chair", just take you back. What an incredible body of work that we won’t see again. "So Good In Love" reminds me of my hometown, Bandera, Texas, and singing it was just good fun. So happy to be helping celebrate the release of "Strait Out The Box 2," (Wrapped and Desperately are on it!).
Thanks for everything George, you are the greatest.
