George Strait has released a brand new track – “Código”. Strait, a partner in and longtime fan of Código tequila, wrote the song with his son Bubba Strait and longtime collaborator Dean Dillon. With its accordion and fiddle, the lighthearted track transports the listener to carefree days where the tequila flows. “Código” celebrates its namesake tequila melding the sounds of southwest Mexico and southwest Texas and as the lyrics suggest, “A little sip and you’re ready to roll…I’m talkin’ ’bout Código.”
“Código” is the first new music following his 2015 album release, Cold Beer Conversation – Strait’s 29th studio album and 26th No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart – and 2016’s Strait Out of the Box: Part 2. Strait is currently working on new music due out in the new year.
With an unmatched 60 singles hitting the top of the charts – more than any other artist in any genre – during the span of his 30-year career, Strait is the undeniable “King of Country Music.” He has collected 33 Platinum or multi-Platinum-selling albums, more than any country artist and third across all genres behind only The Beatles and Elvis Presley. Strait is the only act in history to have a Top 10 hit every year for over three decades, has sold nearly 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards, including induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.
