Country legend George Strait took to his Instagram account with a post that he wanted his followers to share with others as a pick me up on Tuesday (July 27th).
“Send this to someone who looks so good in love. ❤️ #YouLookSoGoodInLove,” George Strait states in the post, which features a video of him singing his hit single You Look So Good in Love.
Written by Glen Ballard, Rory Bourke, and Kerry Chater, You look So Good in Love was released in September 1983. The song was the lead song from George Strait’s album Right or Wrong. The song’s chorus goes You look so good in love/ You want him/ That’s easy to see/ You look so good in love/ I wish you still wanted me.
George Strait is currently gearing up for his upcoming tour, staring at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. His other tour stops include the Austin City Limits Music Festival, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, US Bank Stadium, and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
George Strait Talks His Favorite Songs
In a 2004 interview with CMT, George Strait shares details about his favorite songs. The first song he chats about is Amarillo By Morning. “[It] was a song that had some regional success in [San Antonio, Texas],” the country legend states. He also says he had known and performed the song for a long time. “But most people in Texas had heard that song, and it has been played around here in local bands.”
George Strait also discusses the history behind She’ll Leave You With a Smile. “That was one of the songs that came out of a huge box of CDs, demos that I was listening to while riding around on the ranch. I just kept going through songs and I came across that one and thought, ‘Man, that’s it. I know it is.’”
George Strait further explains what he looks for in a song. “I think the thing that catches my ear first is the melody,” he explains. “If you look at the Dean Dillon songs, they’ve all got such interesting different melodies that you don’t often hear and a lot of just really pretty chord changes.”
George also states that if the melody catches his ear, then he starts listening to the lyrics. He notes that Dillon also writes “catchy lyrics” that are different and that’s why he’s always kind of partial to his songs. He goes on to add, “They just kind of fit me. And I wish there was something I could just say and put my finger on and say this is what I look for in a song, but there’s not.”
