GEORGE STRAIT 'GIVES IT ALL HE'S GOT' WITH HIS LATEST SINGLE. (AUDIO)    5/2/13

George Strait is getting closer to scoring his 60th number-one single with “Give It All We Got Tonight,” a song that he wasn’t sure he would be able to fully capture the song. “The first time I heard it I thought, ‘Hmm, that’s a great song,” says George. “[It’s] a little different for me, you know, a little risqué kinda.’ I’m thinking, ‘I don’t know if I can pull this off or not.’”

After he spoke with a member of his team who assured the music icon he could do it (EDITOR’S NOTE: He could sing the contents of a cereal box and make it a hit.], George recorded it and just fell in love with it. “It’s a little different, the melody’s a little different, great lyrics,” he says. “It’s kinda about parking, [laughs] which I’ve done a few times back in the early days. [laughs]”

“Give It All We Got Tonight” is the first single from George’s forthcoming album, Love is Everything.

George Strait (Give It All We Got Tonight) OC: …early days. [laughs]
“I hadn’t done any recording in quite a while, and so I really didn’t have anything to put out, but I was trying to find a few songs just to go in and cut. So, I was listening to stuff constantly, every day. The first time I heard it I thought, ‘Hmm, that’s a great song. [It’s] a little different for me, you know, a little risqué kinda.’ I’m thinking, ‘I don’t know if I can pull this off or not.’ But, I talked with [UMG’s] Brian [Wright] a little bit about it, and he said, ‘Sure you can. You can do it.’ I said, ‘Alright. We’ll try it.’ So, we did, and I just love it. I mean, it’s, like I said, it’s a little different, the melody’s a little different, great lyrics. It’s kinda about parking, [laughs] which I’ve done a few times back in the early days. [laughs]”
