Whenever back-to-school season hits, George Strait is always on our minds. Because his 1995 “Check Yes or No” video was set in the classroom where he fell in love with Emmylou Hayes, way back in third grade. That video will forever make us want to go back to school.
But now, there is more Strait news to share.
Remember his 1995 Strait Out of the Box: Part 1 box set of four discs? Well, it’s back. Strait is re-issuing the massive collection at Walmart on September 13.
