Why Scotty McCreery’s Favorite George Strait Song Isn’t Among Tracks He Name-Checks in “Damn Strait”
Scotty McCreery‘s new tune, “Damn Strait,” pays homage to the “King of Country,” by weaving together references to some of George Strait‘s best hits, in one new song. It tells a new breakup story.
“Even if you don’t know this George Strait song — which, shame on you if you don’t — but if you don’t, you still get the song, you know?” Scotty tells ABC Audio.
But Scotty’s favorite George Strait song is actually “The Chair.” He and his writing team tried to include it in “Damn Strait,” but he says the steel drums made the lawyers nervous.
Same Truck, Scotty’s album from September 2021, includes the song “Damn Strait.”
