Kyle Park Debuts ‘Fit for the King’ Music Video
We all know who George Strait is, he just landed the 60th No.1 single of his career. He’s also announced he will be retiring from touring once his current Cowboy Rides Away Tour wraps in 2014. A few weeks ago Kyle Park called in to debut his new single, “Fit for the King” a tribute to Strait, today the official video hit YouTube — Check it out.
We’ll likely never be able to gauge Strait’s influence on Country Music over the past 30 years. But in one song Kyle Park has given us perhaps a reference point, and clearly shown the affect King George has had on him.
“One of my heroes is George Strait,” Kyle told me. “And I have this song on my record that’s a collaboration of all my favorite songs by him, all my favorite titles, it’s called “Fit for the King,” every word [in it] is a George Strait song.”
To say it’s a clever song is an understatement. True George Strait has had 60 No. 1′s, and countless more Top 10′s so Park wasn’t short on Strait titles to choose from. But still, the fact that he was able to put thirty-one of of them into one song, and make a sensible story out of it is pretty cool.
