Cody Johnson proves George Strait is Timeless in ‘You Look So Good in Love’ Cover 1

At the beginning of the video he says, “I’d take this time to record my favorite George Strait songs of all time, I’ve been very honored by George’s team to pick a song from his hits for the month of October and there’s been a lot of milestones for the month of October over the last couple of years. My favorite has to be ‘You Look So Good in Love.’ I’m gonna do the best I can. Here’s to you, George.”

George Strait had an album Strait Out of the Box: Part 2 so artists shared the covers of their favorite Strait tracks. While sitting in a field, Johnson pours his heart out and sang ‘You Look So Good in Love.’ Here’s the video below.

‘You Look So Good in Love’

This is a song written by Glen Ballard, Rory Michael Bourke and Kerry Chater and it was the lead single for George Strait’s album Right or Wrong. It is about a guy looking at his ex-girlfriend who is now in-love with another guy. He realizes just how happy his former lover looks now that she’s fallen in love. Although he feels sorry for himself, a part of him realizes it wasn’t meant to be.

Another interesting fact about the original music video of this song is that George disliked the   “slow-paced and romantic theme” so he asked for it to be taken off the air. He refused to do music videos for several more years afterward.

I personally felt the regret both singers felt about losing the ex-girlfriend but I guess it true when they say that you don’t what you got ’til it’s gone.
