I’ve been waiting for this one to come on Spotify and now I’ve had a chance to listen to it. And it’s quickly become one of my current favorites out there in the country world.
You can’t beat a George Strait song. The man has been doing this for well over 30 years and he’s still as good as ever. And he’s still plenty active out there. Don’t let him let you think that’s he’s been moving into retirement.
Here is his latest single.
Cold Beer Conversation – George Strait
I don’t know what it is about George Strait. Maybe he doesn’t even know, but he has a really good knack for putting out catchy songs that aren’t gimmicky or anything really crazy. They just seem comfortable and unique at the same time.
It’s like everybody else is trying to do something with their music while George seems to just let it happen.
Now, I’m sure he works really hard, but he makes it seems so easy and that’s a real challenge with anything in life.
The song is about life in general and about looking back and looking ahead and figuring out what it all means. It’s about the conversations you have with good friends over a couple beers. Those can be some of the best conversations you have in life whether it’s with friends, a spouse or family.
Life can be hard to live sometimes, but if you get together with someone and talk about it things can seem alright and it can seem like you’ll be just fine.
Great song. It sounds like a classic George song while still sounding like it could be a hit today. I hope it will be one.
