“The Breath You Take” is a song by American country music singer George Strait which was released last July 12, 2010. This is fourth single from his 26th studio album, Twang. It received a 2011 Grammy Awards nomination in the “Best Country Song” category on December 1st, 2010. This song was written by veteran songwriter Dean Dillon, Jessie Jo Dillon, and Casey Beathard.
The song is about savoring and realizing the important moments in life, whether they be large or small. The story is told through fatherly love, starting by giving examples from the baseball field of a boy’s youth and moving to the more emotionally jarring times, birth and death.
