She Let Herself Go By George Strait Teaches Women How To Handle Breakups Creatively

She Let Herself Go + George Strait

“She Let Herself Go” by George Strait is a song about breakups. The song is composed by Kerry Kurt Phillips and Dean Dillon. This heartbreaking song was released on September 6, 2005, and it is the second single that is included in Strait’s album Somewhere Down in Texas. Throughout his entire music career, there are 60 George Strait songs that became number one. This is more than any other artist has acquired.

So, what is the song all about? “She Let Herself Go” by George Strait tells the story of a woman who was left by her lover. Since the woman was heartbroken, then it is presumed that she will “let herself go.” Most probably, this incident can greatly affect her emotionally and physically, making her cry more and more. She will not be able to have a good night’s sleep. Since her relationship has ended, she does not care about her looks anymore. However, her lover will not be able to see this since he is already gone.

Nevertheless, letting herself go is given another meaning in the Chorus. It describes how the woman is enjoying herself after the breakup. She joined excursions that she never did before.

Sometimes getting out of the situation can help you discover the good things in life that you have been missing all those years.

In January 2006, “She Let Herself Go” by George Strait peaked at the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. This song is also his 40th number 1 single, which was included in the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.
