George Strait Shares Love of Tequila Through Song

George Strait is a big fan of Código Tequila. In fact, he likes it so much that he is an investor in the brand. He became an investor in the tequila company during 2017. He also even recorded a song about the tequila; it was appropriately titled “Código.”

Lyrics of the song include: “The perfect recipe / Baby, you and me / The secret’s been found / Let’s pour one right nowI’m talkin’ ’bout Codigo / I take it with me everywhere I go / Best tequila, baby, don’t you know / A little sip and you’re ready to roll / They make it down in Mexico / A little state called Jalisco / Where the beautiful agaves grow / I’m talkin’ ’bout Codigo.”
