Scott Cooke McCreery was born on October 9, 1993. An American country music singer. He rose to fame after winning the tenth season of American Idol on May 25, 2011. His debut studio album, Clear as Day, was released in October 2011 and was certified platinum in the United States. The album includes the top 20 country songs, “I Love You This Big” and “The Trouble with Girls”. McCreery began singing as a child in Garner, North Carolina. School performances eventually gave way to local competitions, and McCreery won a singing contest in the nearby town of Clayton before trying out for American Idol as a 16-year-old. Auditioning with Josh Turner’s “Your Man,” he made good use of his country twang and deep baritone vocals, prompting the judges to compare him to Randy Travis. McCreery passed the audition, became an audience favorite, and eventually won the competition in May 2011. In October 2013, he returned with his second official studio album, See You Tonight. Produced by veteran producer Frank Rogers, the album moved McCreery into bright contemporary country-pop. It was a success, debuting at number one on Billboard’s Country Albums chart and earning McCreery’s the Breakthrough Artist Award at the 2013 American Country Awards.

Damn Strait Lyrics

Song by Scotty McCreery

“Nobody In His Right Mind Would’ve Left Her”
That was her favorite song
She sang along every time it came on

First time we danced was to Marina Del Rey
And I fell right there and then
I didn’t want that song to end

Baby blue was the color of her eyes
I can still see them in my mind
Probably will for the rest of my life

Damn Strait, you’re killing me man
You know I’ve always been your biggest fan
Now I can’t even listen
‘Cause I’ll get to missin’ her
Then the hurt gets worse

Damn Strait, I used to love your songs
But now every time that one comes on
My heart gets broke in half
But do I wish I could get her back?
Damn Strait

The other day right out of a blue clear sky
You came on in my truck
I couldn’t turn it off fast enough

I tried to get back in the game
But this ole heart just ain’t the same
Hell I can’t even give it away

Damn Strait, you’re killing me man
You know I’ve always been your biggest fan
Now I can’t even listen
‘Cause I’ll get to missin’ her
Then the hurt gets worse

Damn Strait, I used to love your songs
But now every time that one comes on
My heart gets broke in half
But do I wish I could get her back?
Damn Strait

I know it ain’t your fault
That she left me
And you know you’ll always be the king
But right now, I hate everything

Damn Strait, you’re killing me man
You know I’ve always been your biggest fan
Now I can’t even listen
‘Cause I’ll get to missin’ her
Then the hurt gets worse

Damn Strait, I used to love your songs
But now every time that one comes on
My heart gets broke in half
But do I wish I could get her back?
Damn Strait
Damn Strait

“Nobody In His Right Mind Would’ve Left Her”
That was her favorite song
She sang along every time it came on
