George Strait Co-Writes for Honky Tonk Time Machine

Releases 30th Studio Album on March 29

George Strait’s 30th studio album Honky Tonk Time Machine arrives March 29.

The collection will feature 12 new originals, eight of which are co-written by Strait, plus an updated version of Johnny Paycheck’s “Old Violin.” His grandson, Harvey Strait, appears as a guest vocalist on “God and Country Music,” and the album closes with the Willie Nelson duet, “Sing One with Willie.” “Código” and “God and Country Music” are available now.

Strait co-produced the album with Chuck Ainlay.

“I’m really excited to have some new music coming out,” Strait shared in a press release. “It’s been about two years since I’ve released a record. It was great writing with Bubba and Dean again and creating such a beautiful song with Bubba and Jeff Hyde. Also, it was a very special thing for me to be able to write and sing one with the legend, Willie Nelson. I hope everyone enjoys listening to Honky Tonk Time Machine as much as I enjoyed making it.”

The King of Country’s sold-out Strait to Vegas series continues this weekend at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena. He headlines Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on March 30, and four more Strait concerts are scheduled through Nov. 23. Tickets for night two of his two-night stand at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas go on sale Feb. 8 through Ticketmaster. Complete tour information can be found by visiting Strait’s website.
