Country music legend George Strait took to social media on Thursday afternoon to post a throwback clip of him performing “Write This Down.”
As Strait notes in his latest tweet, his hit song, “Write This Down,” was co-written by Dana Hunt Black and Kent Robbins. It is the second single from Strait’s album, Always Never the Same.
Upon its release back in March of 1999, the song quickly rose up the charts. In fact, it turned out to be Strait’s 35th number-one single on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. It also peaked at number 27 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it one of Strait’s most successful crossover hits.
“To remind you in case you didn’t know, today is the anniversary of #WriteThisDown,” Strait captioned his post. “Penned by Dana Hunt Black and Kent Robbins.”
Fans of the King of Country on Twitter were loving his recent anniversary tweet. Many of them left replies for the country star reminiscing about the hit song. One fan even shared what exactly the song means to her on a personal level.
“Seems this deals with people who are in love and try to keep that love alive and going strong,” Twitter user Queenvick_56 wrote. “So true on writing stuff down for each other, as I have a poem my husband wrote to me in 1978. Nicely sang George Strait.”
It’s almost impossible to read the catchy lyrics of the song without singing along.
“Baby write this down, take a little note
To remind you in case you didn’t know,
Tell yourself I love you and I don’t want you to go,
Write this down.”
