The second single from his 23rd studio album, "She Let Herself Go" earned its No. 1 spot as a "clever breakup tale".
Continuing on his path of phenomenal success, George Strait has continued to release new records like clockwork since his debut in 1981 - almost every one of them being certified Platinum by the RIAA.
His 2005 hit, "She Let Herself Go" reached the top of Billboard's Hot Country Songs within just four months of release. It puts an interesting spin on the classic country theme of breakups, and focuses on a woman who has just lost her male lover. While her former lover assumes she will "let herself go", the song gives a new meaning to the phrase by stating she "let herself go" on vacations, outings, and do things that he had never allowed her to do. It mentions a spa in New York, a singles cruise, and a trip to the beach.
The album his single is drawn from hit the No. 1 chart position in both the U.S. and Canada and was followed by another successful project by "The King of Country", It Just Comes Natural in October 2006.

He wondered how she'd take it when he said goodbye
Thought she might do some cryin' lose some sleep at night
But he had no idea, when he hit the road
That without him in her life, she'd let herself go
Let herself go on a singles cruise
To Vegas once, then to Honolulu
Let herself go to New York City
A week at the Spa, came back knocked-out pretty
When he said he didn't love her no more
She let herself go
She poured her heart an' soul into their three-bedroom ranch
Spent her days raisin' babies, ironin' his pants
Came home one day from the grocery store and found his note
And without him there to stop her, she let herself go
Let herself go on her first blind-date
Had the time of her life with some friends at the lake
Let herself go, buy a brand new car
Drove down to the beach he always said was too far
Sand sure felt good between her toes
To Vegas once
Honolulu, New York City
Came back knocked-out pretty
