"Wrapped" is a song written by Bruce Robison. First recorded on his 1998 album Wrapped, then by Kelly Willis on her 1998 album What I Deserve, it was later covered by American country-music artist George Strait on his 2006 album It Just Comes Natural. It was released on March 19, 2007 as the album's third single; Strait's version of the song was a Top 5 country hit, reaching number 2 on the Billboard country charts.

Content[edit]

"Wrapped" is a mid-tempo where the narrator explains his inability to stop thinking about a lover who has left.

This is the second single of George Strait's career that was written and originally recorded by Bruce Robison. The first such single was Robison's "Desperately", also a cut from his album Wrapped, that Strait covered on his 2003 album Honkytonkville.

Critical reception[edit]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic cited the song as a standout track on It Just Comes Natural, saying that the song was "laid-back" and that Strait's backing band sounded "natural" on the track.[1]
