George Strait (more comfortable in the studio) OC: …very nervous. :52
“I’m definitely more comfortable in the studio these days. It took me a while. I mean, when you go into a studio for the first time with some pretty great players, it’s pretty intimidating. It was for me anyway. I was nervous, really nervous, and I’m sure it showed. But I think as you continue to be able to make records, you get a little more comfortable in the studio. A lot of the players are good friends of mine now, and I enjoy seeing ‘em and being with ‘em all week, however long we’re recording. So, it’s fun. I look forward to it these days; not that I didn’t look forward to it then. I mean, I was excited as hell to go and do it, you know, I was! Not a lot of people get to do that, but I was just very nervous.”
