The follow-up to his 4th consecutive #1, “You Time,” Scotty McCreery is out with his latest single, “Damn Strait.” Featured on his brand new album Same Truck.
Written by Trent Tomlinson and Jim Collins, “Damn Strait” honors country music icon George Strait, even as the singer bemoans the loss of his lover, associating Strait’s songs with her since they were the couple’s favorites.
“Every now and then you hear a song that sounds so much like you,” recalls McCreery. “I grew up as a huge George Strait fan, and when I heard this song, I raised my hand to say, ‘I want this one.’ Every country fan has a George Strait story, and everyone has a memory attached to their favorite songs.”
McCreery goes on to say, “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.’”
