Cute Kids Singing Country Songs – George Strait, ‘Amarillo by Morning’

This dapper young fella is all dressed up to sing a classic from the King. We love the seafoam button-down and necktie. Sure, it’s probably a clip-on, but have you ever tried to knot a double windsor? His stiff white hat is a throwback to the time George Strait first made ‘Amarillo by Morning’ a country hit in 1983.
What Christian captures so well is Strait’s sense of despair as he works through this No. 1 hit with his guitarist, who is presumably his father or a close relative. The young man’s focus indicates a reverence for the song and the superstar who made it famous. You did well, kid, even nailing the key change half way through.
