George Strait Reveals 30th Studio Album Release Date, Track Listing

George Strait will release his 30th album, Honky Tonk Time Machine, on March 29 via MCA Nashville. Strait produced the project with Chuck Ainlay, and penned eight of the project’s 13 tracks, including “Sing One With Willie,” which features the legendary Willie Nelson. Nelson and Strait debuted the song during a recent Nashville show, marking the first time the two country icons have shared the stage.

The album’s first single, “God and Country Music,” was penned by Luke Laird, Barry Dean, and Lori McKenna and introduces a special vocal guest, Strait’s grandson, Harvey Strait.

“I’m really excited to have some new music coming out,” Strait says. “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.”
