If you are a fan of country music, you probably know the song “Check Yes or No” by George Strait. It is one of his most popular and beloved hits, and it tells a sweet story of childhood love that lasts a lifetime. But do you know the background and details of this song? Here are some interesting facts about “Check Yes or No” that you may not know.

– The song was released in September 1995 as the lead single from Strait’s box set Strait Out of the Box. It was written by Danny Wells and Dana Hunt Black, who were inspired by a real note that Hunt Black’s husband had received from a girl in elementary school.
– The song reached number one on both the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart, becoming Strait’s 34th number one hit in the U.S. and his 11th in Canada.
– The song was accompanied by a music video that featured footage of Strait performing the song interspersed with scenes of two young actors portraying the couple in the song. The actors were Trevor Brazile and Haley King, who were both 10 years old at the time. Brazile is now a professional rodeo cowboy and King is an actress who has appeared in shows like The Young and the Restless and A.N.T. Farm.
– The music video was directed by John Lloyd Miller, who also directed Strait’s videos for “The Cowboy Rides Away”, “The Fireman”, and “The Chill of an Early Fall”. Miller said that he wanted to capture the innocence and simplicity of the song, and that he was impressed by the natural chemistry between Brazile and King.
– The song has been covered by several artists, including Kenny Chesney, Aaron Watson, Scotty McCreery, and Easton Corbin. Chesney performed the song with Strait at the 2016 ACM Awards as a tribute to Strait’s legendary career.
