First off. Any song about George Strait is country at its best! And, CONGRATULATIONS to TRIPLE TIGERS RECORDS’ SCOTTY McCREERY and his entire team for the #1 single on the MEDIABASE Country singles chart this week, ”Damn Strait!” The song made it to the top of the country charts in its 38th week of being on the chart. Even better news. This is Scotty’s fifth consecutive #1!
The song basically pays homage to the KING of Country himself, GEORGE STRAIT. “Damn Strait” made it’s way to country radio last OCTOBER. It was written by TRENT TOMLINSON and JIM COLLINS. 38 weeks later. Here we are y’all.
TRIPLE TIGERS SVP/Promotion KEVIN HERRING said, “When we heard SCOTTY sing this song, we thought we had something really special. After playing it for a handful of radio programmers, we were sure of it.”
McCREERY also added, “This song is such a great tribute to one of my musical heroes, GEORGE STRAIT, while also using his song titles in a clever way to tell such a heartbreaking story. I’ve loved it from the moment I first heard it. It is one of my favorite songs that I’ve recorded, and the fans love it in concert as well. You can feel the anticipation in the air as they get ready to sing along on the chorus.”
