George Strait Releases New Single, ‘I Believe’

Fresh off the success of scoring his 60th No. 1 hit,  George Strait has released a new single from his latest album, ‘Love is Everything.’ The tune, ‘I Believe,’ which Strait co-wrote with his son, Bubba Strait, and tunesmith Dean Dillon, was inspired by the tragic school shooting in Newtown, Conn. last December.

“Like everybody, I was watching the coverage on TV,” Strait says. “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. It’s a statement of faith, is really what it is. It turned out beautiful.”

Strait lost his daughter, Jenifer, in a car accident in 1986, when she was 13 years old. The 60-year-old initially thought the song was too personal to record, but added it to the album at the encouragement of his wife, Norma.

The Country Music Hall of Fame member has wrapped up the 2013 leg of his two-year The Cowboy Rides Away tour, which he says will be his last trek. Strait is expected to announce dates for 2014 this fall.
