George Strait

Added on by Craig Stewart.

“You’ll Be There” is a song performed by George Strait on his 2005 album “Somewhere Down in Texas.” Every time Strait performs this song he thinks of Jenifer, his 13-year-old daughter, who was killed in a tragic car accident. It happened late one night when the driver of a Ford Mustang lost control after taking a turn too fast and Jenifer, not wearing her seatbelt, was thrown through an open window. She died right where she fell.

In an interview with USA Today, Strait said, “I’m a religious person. I honestly believe we will see each other in heaven someday,” he says. “I wanted to do the song badly. The writer, Cory Mayo, held that song out because he knew I wanted to do it, and he waited until I had the chance. It was kind of him to do that.”

Now if you’ve ever lost a loved one, it would be hard for you, not to shed tears after hearing such a beautiful song.
