George Strait has had more hits than misses in his recording career. But there was one song that he was pitched that he just didn't get. During a Facebook Live chat before a recent performance in Las Vegas, he said that "Tennessee Whiskey" was pitched to him in the '80s.
"It was a record for -- George Jones cut it. A lot of people cut that record. And Chris Stapleton just nailed it."
David Allan Coe also cut the song, and Meghan Linsey sang "Tennessee Whiskey" in the semi-finals on The Voice in 2015.
