Same Kind of Crazy

Songfacts®:

  • This song was originally recorded by Texas bluesman Delbert McClinton on his 2002 album, Room to Breathe. McClinton co-wrote the song with Gary Nicholson. Strait commented in publicity materials citing how great the studio band sounds on the cut: "It was a fun song to do and we did it in one take. That says a lot for just how much everybody was into it. I'm a Delbert fan, and I hope he likes it. He's one of our Texas treasures."
