George Strait's New Song Inspired By Newtown School Massacre
Strait co-wrote the song with his son, Bubba Strait, and songwriter Dean Dillon after watching the news coverage of the tragady. Having lost his daughter at a young age, George felt as if it was a song he needed to write.
Yet, when he was working on the album, he didn't initially record the song. After listening to the playback of the album, Strait's wife Norma insisted that he record the song so at the end of the session he asked the band to record one more.
He concludes, "It's a statement of faith, is really what it is. It turned out beautiful."
