Who doesn’t love some George Strait?
The unequivocal King of Country Music, George’s list of hits goes on for miles and miles. And for my money, “You Look So Good In Love” has to be in the top 5.
Written by Glen Ballard, Rory Bourke and Kerry Chater, and released as the lead single on Strait’s 1983 Right Or Wrong record, “You Look So Good In Love” went on to become Strait’s third number one single in a long line of number one singles. And even though it’s a “tear in your beer,” country heartbreaker, it still has this romantic, make you to slow dance across the kitchen floor feel to it.
Covered by everybody from Cody Johnson to Jamie Foxx, and more, it’s an absolute George Strait heavyweight classic.
Enter Teddy Swims.
You may remember Teddy from his stellar cover of Shania Twain’s “You’re Still The One,” which earned her nod of approval (and the viral approval of 34 MILLION on the interwebs), but this time, he’s dippin’ into his bag of tricks and pulling out a little George Strait.
And like I said on the Shania cover, you’re don’t necessary expect a dude with face tats and big gauges in his ears (unless you’re Post Malone) to be jammin’ out to country hits from the early ’80s, but Teddy’s soulful, unique approach is as good as anybody’s.
He’s also laid down a little “Tennessee Whiskey.”
