"How many times have you come across a song for the first time and love it instantly? All hail King George."

Co-written with his regular collaborator Dean Dillon, the newest single is named for his most loved brand of tequila produced by a company in which he had contributed.

On March 29, the King of Country published the music video for “Código” on his YouTube channel. A lot of fans quickly showed their love for the video, which already amassed more than 289 thousand views.

HIS FIRST MUSIC VIDEO IN AGES

Fans initially got an insight that Strait, who is known for his neotraditionalist country style and cowboy look, had shot a music video for “Código” when he posted a photo on Instagram.

The snap showed him being filmed. However, the award-winning singer didn't spill the mystery immediately. He simply captioned the post:

"Smile, we've got something exciting coming for you soon!"

ACCLAIMED VOCALIST

During the 1980s, Strait has been credited for bringing country music back to its roots and away from the pop country era. He broke into the country music scene with his first single, “Unwound,” in 1981.

Strait is also one of the most awarded singers. During the 1980s, seven of his albums reached number one on the country charts.

In the 2000s, Strait was named Artist of the Decade by the Academy of Country Music and subsequently elected into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
