As even Kacey Musgraves will tell you, it’s nearly, if not completely impossible to pick just one favorite from country music legend George Strait.
Even choosing between just his 60 number ones seems an infeasible task. In this video, she explains how, as a native Texan herself, he has inspired her career and influenced her music.
Ultimately, she settles on his 50th number one single, “She’ll Leave You with a Smile”.
“It just makes me feel so good every time I hear it, and it’s just kind of a sexy track”.
Written by Odie Blackmon and Jay Knowles, it was released on Strait’s 2002 The Road Less Traveled record.
Check out this performance from his first live album For the Last Time: Live From the Astrodome in 2003.
