Aaron Watson has recorded a cover of the George Strait classic ‘Amarillo By Morning’ to celebrate the upcoming release of ‘Strait Out Of The Box: Part 2′ on November 18th.
“I was honored to be asked by George Strait’s record label to cover my favorite George Strait song in celebration of the release of “Strait Out Of The Box: Part 2” and George’s Texas roots. Probably like you I grew up on and wore out the first one!
Being from Amarillo, TX and loving a great rodeo song, I couldn’t think of a better song than “Amarillo By Morning” when choosing that literally I grew up on and has been in my life since I was a little boy.
Congrats George, you’ve been a huge influence and I appreciate all you have done for country music and Texas. It’s an honor to sing this song”
