If you know anything about country music, you probably know of a guy named George Strait. He’s one if the biggest country stars and it’s not your normal kind of success. He releases album after album, single after single without making much noise. I hardly even notice his songs on the radio anymore because they don’t stand out. Then, when you’re not looking, he comes out with a single that is just amazing and you remember why he is the country star he is.
You’ll Be There is George Strait’s latest single and it didn’t take me long to go and download it from the iTunes music store. The song is about, hopefully, making it to the other side; heaven. I originally thought this was about going to see his loved one that had died, now I’m thinking it’s about just going to meet God. Either way, it’s a great song.
I’ll see you on the other side
If I make it
And it might be a long hard ride
But I’m gonna take it
Sometimes it seems that I don’t have a prayer
Let the weather take me anywhere
But I know that I wanna go
Where the streets are gold
‘Cause you’ll be there
