Hear George Strait's Tequila-Fueled New Song 'Código'

George Strait celebrates his favorite tequila in his brand new song "Código," which he wrote with his son Bubba Strait and longtime collaborator Dean Dillon.

The fiddle and accordion-heavy song is a little Doug Sahm, a little Bob Wills and a whole lot of Strait party anthem perfection.

"I'm talkin' 'bout Código/I take it with me everywhere I go," Strait sings. "A little sip and you're ready to go...I'm talkin' 'bout Código."

The King of Country is a longtime fan of Código tequila and even partnered with the brand in 2017.

The song is the first new music Strait has released since his 2015 album Cold Beer Conversation.
