Aside from being the newest single from Texas Country singer Rich O’Toole, “God & George Strait” is honest, good music. With his powerful story telling abilities, he has our attention from the first chords to the final words.
“Back in the day I thought I knew everything,
Was too cool for Jesus, I didn’t bow to the king.
When I hit Rock Bottom, figured out where I went wrong
Yeah I need a little prayer, and the chill of an early fall”
Rich O’Toole has a history of inspiring lyrics, summer anthems, and vulnerable love songs, but “God & George Strait” brings out a different side, a side that is only proof of his growth as an artist. While the title is straight forward, it is the message that goes much deeper, and it is relatable to all of us.
So take a long listen, maybe a few, and reflect on where “God & George Strait” belongs in in your life.
