Song the Best days of my Life

"The Best Day" is a song written by Dean Dillon and Carson Chamberlain, and performed by American country music singer George Strait. It was released in January 2000 as the first single from his album . The song reached the top of the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart.

"The Best Day" is told through the eyes of a father who recalls his son describing key events of his life as being "the best day of [his] life, " since they were particularly memorable and had pleasant memories attached to them. As the song progresses, the son grows from childhood into adolescence and eventually adulthood.

The first verse recalls a father-son campout, and the young boy looking forward to a weekend of fishing, conversation and bonding, and other camping-related activities with his father.

The third and final verse is set on the son's wedding day. As they stand in a rear room of the church, the son after vowing to take what he learned in childhood from his parents and applying it to his new marriage repeats a line he has at the previous two points of his life: "I'm the luckiest man alive, this is the best day of my life" — in this final verse, replacing "boy" with "man."

The song is in the key of A major with a 4/4 time signature and a slow tempo of about 66 beats per minute. Its intro uses the pattern A-Aaug-D-E7, and the verses use a pattern of A-D-E-A.

Critical reception[edit]

Larry Flick, of magazine reviewed the song favorably, calling it a "well-written tale that listeners will find easily relatable, and the chorus makes this the ultimate feel-good tune to kick off the millennium." He goes on to say that Strait's "warm-throated delivery is all honest emotion."
