Breakout country artist Kyle Park honors his greatest musical influence, George Strait, with the release of his brand new single “Fit For The King” to the Texas Music Chart and Texas Regional Radio Report today. Solely written and produced by Kyle, the clever tribute weaves lyrics from 31 George Strait songs into a story about heartbreak. Directed by Paul De La Cerda, the “Fit For The King” music video features unique footage of George Strait in concert and memorabilia combined with Kyle’s exhilarating live show.
“Writing this song was more about putting everything together, kind of like a puzzle,” shares Kyle Park. “I had a lot of George Strait CD’s and tapes at the time, (and I still do). I laid them all out across the floor and started with the song ‘Go On,’ placing the right titles in the right place. The song basically rolled out from there!”
“Fit For The King” is the follow up to his back-to-back, #1 smashes “True Love” and “The Night Is Young.” Featured on his current album BEGGIN’ FOR MORE, the song is already garnering buzz amongst radio.
“Kyle’s tribute to George Strait is something that I feel is needed in country music today … For Kyle to remind us just how great George was, is, and always will be was very comforting to me as a fan of Kyle and of course George,” – Adam Drake, KORA/College Station, TX
“’Fit For the King’ is a musical puzzle that instantly draws you in … all the pieces fit together, you know all the songs, and in the end you say WOW that was awesome! Kyle Park is at the top of his game!” – Austin Daniels, KFTX-FM/Corpus Christi, TX
