George Strait's New Song Inspired By Newtown School Massacre

Country superstar George Strait has released his latest single "I Believe" which was inspired by the tragic school massacre in Newtown, Conn. last December. We were sent over these details:

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.

"Like everybody, I was watching the coverage on TV," said Strait in an interview. "I know what these parents are going through. It's the worst thing that can happen to you in your life. To lose a child….there's nothing worse than that. So I started thinking about saying something about it."

He concludes, "It's a statement of faith, is really what it is. It turned out beautiful."

"I Believe" comes from Strait's latest album 'Love Is Everything' and is the follow-up single to his record breaking 60th No. 1 song "Give It All We Got Tonight".
