Country Icon George Strait Announces ‘Honky Tonk Time Machine’

Produced by Strait and Chuck Ainlay, the 13-song set features Strait’s duet with Willie Nelson, ‘Sing One With Willie.’

Published on

One of the greatest names and most successful artists in country music history, George Strait, will return with his 30th studio album Honky Tonk Time Machine on 29 March on MCA Records.

The new set, produced by Strait and Chuck Ainlay, features 12 new titles and his version of Johnny Paycheck’s 1986 country hit ‘Old Violin.’ Among the highlights of the new album is Strait’s duet with Willie Nelson, ‘Sing One With Willie.’ That’s one of eight tracks on Honky Tonk Time Machine co-written by Strait. He and  Nelson recently debuted the song at a show in Nashville, the first time the two superstars have shared a stage. 

The album is introduced by the release today (1) of ‘God and Country Music,’ a poignant new song written by Luke Laird, Barry Dean and Lori McKenna. Evoking memories from country’s great heritage and namechecking Johnny Cash as well as Hank Williams’ ‘I Saw The Light,’ the recording features a guest appearance, on the song’s finale, by Strait’s grandson Harvey.

“I’m really excited to have some new music coming out,” says Strait. “It’s been about two years since I’ve released a record. It was great writing with Bubba [his son George Jr.] and Dean [Dillon] 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.” Strait’s 21st and 22nd sold out shows of his Strait to Vegas residency at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas take place this weekend.

Honky Tonk Time Machine is released on 29 March. Scroll down for the tracklisting, and pre-order it here.
