George Strait, you've done it again and melted our hearts with your beautifully sung words! 

If y'all didn't already know that George is a family man, then this song is sure to remind you of that. 

During one of his shows, George sang his heartfelt song, "The Best Day", and wow, this performance is one for the books! You can just see the fatherly pride in his eyes as he sings, "I'm the luckiest man alive / This is the best day of my life". We love how much he values family and especially his son!

"The Best Day" was released in 2000, as the first single from George's album, Latest Greatest Straitest Hits. The emotional father/son song was a huge success for George, topping the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. 

"The Best Day" is a story about a father and son, told through the eyes of the father. He reminisces on the days that his son had called 'the best day' of his life, like camping with his dad and getting his first car. Throughout the song the young boy goes from childhood to adulthood, his final 'best day' being his wedding day.

Check out the video below, and prepare to be blown away by George's live performance of "The Best Day"! 

LYRICS BELOW 

We loaded up my old station wagon
With a tent, coleman, and sleepin' bags
Some fishin' poles, a cooler of Cokes
Three days before we had to be back
When you're seven, you're in Seventh Heaven
When you're goin' campin' in the wild outdoors
And as we turned off o that old dirt road,
He looked at me and swore

Dad, this could be the best day of my life
I've been dreamin' day and night 'bout the fun we'll have
It's just me and you doin' what I've always wanted to
I'm the luckiest boy alive
This is the best day of my life

Well, his fifteenth birthday rolled around
Classic cars were his thing
When I pulled in the drive with that old 'Vette
I thought that boy would go insane
When you're in your teens
Your dreams revolve around four spinning wheels
We worked nights on end 'til it was new again
And as he sat behind the wheel, he said

Dad, this could be the best day of my life
I've been dreamin' day and night 'bout the fun we'll have
It's just me and you doin' what I've always wanted to
I'm the luckiest boy alive
This is the best day of my life

Standin' in a little room
Back of the church with our tuxes on
Lookin' at him I say
"I can't believe, son, that you're grown"
He said

Dad, this could be the best day of my life
I've been dreamin' day and night 'bout bein' like you
Now it's me and her watchin' you and Mom I've learned
I'm the luckiest man alive
This is the best day of my life

I'm the luckiest man alive
This is the best day of my life
