Iconic entertainer George Strait continues his reign as the King of Country Music with the release today of his 30th career studio album Honky Tonk Time Machine. The brand new album, which includes Strait’s latest radio single “Every Little Honky Tonk Bar,” is now available for download HERE.
Los Angeles Times noted, “George Strait calls his new album Honky Tonk Time Machine, but it’s hard to think of a country star less in need of one of those,” while Rolling Stone calls it “a signature set of Texas soul and swing.”
Produced by George Strait and Chuck Ainley, Honky Tonk Time Machine includes 13 tracks, eight of which were written by Strait himself. Stand-out tracks include “Sing One with Willie” featuring Willie Nelson and Strait’s version of the Johnny Paycheck classic “Old Violin.” Yet, perhaps the most notable and sentimental highlight of the album is “God and Country Music.” Written by Luke Laird, Barry Dean and Lori McKenna, the song features a very special vocal guest, Strait’s grandson, Harvey Strait.
To further celebrate the release of Honky Tonk Time Machine, the Texas native will travel to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga. on Saturday (March 30) to play in front of a sold-out crowd alongside openers Chris Stapleton, Chris Janson and Ashley McBryde. The performance will serve as Strait’s first visit to Atlanta since his 2014 “Cowboy Rides Away” tour.
