Another Broken Hearted Song By King George : “Wrapped”

Another Broken Hearted Song By King George : “Wrapped” 1

This hit by King George was written by Bruce Robinson. He has written tons of songs both for himself and other artists. Some of these songs are Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s duet “Angry All the Time”, “Travellin’ Soldier” by Dixie Chicks and many more. However, when Robinson was asked if what is his favorite, he said it’s “Wrapped” by George Strait.

Being Wrapped

“Wrapped” was the title track of Robinson’s album back in 1988. It was recorded by his wife, Kelly Willis, for her album “What I Deserve. And the song became a No. 1 hit for the king of country music, George Strait. The Country Music Hall of Famer included the song on his 2006 album “It Just Comes Natural”. Robinson recalls the story of heartache with a happy ending behind the song “Wrapped”. He said:

“The girl I ended up marrying had completely destroyed me, broke my heart. Austin, [Texas] is a lot like Nashville now, where it’s so big, but at that point, it felt like a really small town, and everywhere I would go, I would see her little car outside”.

Robinson also said that he couldn’t get over her. He wrote the song completely in response to not moving on. According to him, every time he thought he was over her.

“I’d see her again, and I’d realize that she had me wrapped around her finger. So, true story — and I married her. Four kids later, yikes”.

He loved playing the song and Robinson also admires George Strait by covering the song.

“I love to play that [song], and Strait did such a great job on that. George Strait in Texas, golly — he’s just so much a part of life down there. So when he did a couple of my songs, it was such an amazing thing. Your family feels like, “He must be doing all right if George Strait cut one of his songs.” And then, when I play that live and everybody seems to know it, and they sing along with it, it’s just the best feeling”.

The Song and its Ranks

“Wrapped” is a mid-tempo where the narrator explains his inability to stop thinking about a lover who has left. This is the second single of George Strait’s career that was written and originally recorded by Bruce Robison. The first such single was Robison’s “Desperately”, also a cut from his album Wrapped, which Strait covered on his 2003 album Honkytonkville. It was released on March 19, 2007, as the album’s third single; Strait’s version of the song was a Top 5 country hit, reaching number 2 on the Billboard country charts.
