Scotty McCreery was first inspired to become a singer because of George Strait…now he’s singing “Damn Strait.”
It turns out when Scotty was young his first concert helped him decide a career path, “The first country music concert I ever went to was George Strait, Reba, and Lee Ann Womack. When I saw that show I said ‘I’m gonna do that one day.'”
So when he heard the Trent Tomlinson and Jim Collins song Scotty knew he had to record it, especially when he heard the lyric “first time we danced was to ‘Marina Del Ray’.”
Scotty says “Every now and then you hear a song that sounds so much like you. I grew up as a huge George Strait fan, and when I heard this song I raised my hand to say ‘I want to this one.'”
“Damn Strait” is one of the 12-tracks included on Scotty’s album, Same Truck, which arrived last Fall.
Scotty says that his current single at country radio is easy to relate to, “Every country fan has a George Strait story and everyone has a memory attached to their favorite songs.”
Now fans are attaching new memories to “Damn Strait.”
Fans will get to hear Scotty sing this one live and in-person when his Same Truck tour launches next week in Raleigh, North Carolina.
