Scotty McCreery wowed the nation with his cover of country legend George Strait‘s hit single “Check Yes or No.” The country heart-throb belted out Strait’s classic back in 2011 for his final performance of the tenth season of American Idol which inevitably won him the title.
Scotty took the stage with his guitar and a pocketful of country boy charm making girls across the nation swoon before sending in their votes for him. McCreery’s cover of the classic is so strikingly similar to that of Strait. If you weren’t watching the video you may not notice it is in fact a cover.
The song was originally released as a single off of George Strait’s Strait Out of the Box album back in 1995 which hit No. 1 on both U.S. Billboard country chart and Canadian RPM country chart. Scotty manages to exude the same warmth and charm as George did in the original.
