Story Behind the Song: George Strait, ‘I Saw God Today’

“I Saw God Today,” written by Rodney Clawson, Monty Criswell and Wade Kirby, became the lead single from George Strait‘s Troubadour album. When the country icon released the track in February of 2008, it debuted at No. 19 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart — the highest chart debut of his career.

“I Saw God Today” hit No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart in May of 2008, becoming Strait’s 43rd Billboard No. 1 and 56th overall No. 1. Below, Strait tells The Boot about the tune.

“I Saw God Today” is such a well-written song … It means a lot.

Sometimes we take a lot of things for granted, especially anybody that’s had a child. When they first see that child — if they’re in the delivery room or not — it truly is a miracle. And you just realize that all of these things that God has given us … sometimes you just take for granted. But if you just step back and take a look around, you’ll see what beauty we have around us in the things that He has created for us.
