Why Scotty McCreery’s Favorite George Strait Song Isn’t Among Tracks He Name-Checks

Scotty McCreery’s new tune, “Damn Strait,” pays homage to the King of Country himself, weaving together references to some of George Strait’s best hits to tell 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. Scotty’s favorite George Strait song is “The Chair,” and while they tried to include it in “Damn Strait,” the steel drums made the lawyers nervous.  Same Truck, Scotty’s album from September 2021, includes the song “Damn Strait.”
