George Strait, the King of Country, is without a doubt one of the kings of country hits as well. In this clip, he talks about what makes a hit song.
When I'm looking for new songs for a record, it's impossible to know really if it's going to be a hit record or not. You just have to go with your gut. I think mainly it's the melody that grabs me to start with. I've always been a kind of melody guy. A melody is what catches my ear and gets my attention. I think that a great song has to have a great melody. When you get a great melody and then great lyrics, then you have a great song.
If there's one person to get advice from on a hit song, it's definitely King George! Watch and get a sneak peek into what helps George decide if his song is a potential hit.
