GEORGE STRAIT'S 30TH STUDIO ALBUM - HONKY TONK TIME MACHINE - DUE OUT MARCH 29


NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Iconic entertainer and King of Country Music George Strait announces today his brand-new album Honky Tonk Time Machine due out Friday, March 29 on MCA Nashville. Comprised of 12 original titles plus Strait's version of the Johnny Paycheck classic "Old Violin," Honky Tonk Time Machine marks an incredible 30th career studio album for Strait. Strait, who produced the album alongside Chuck Ainlay, wrote eight of the 13 tracks including "Sing One with Willie" featuring Willie Nelson that the pair happily debuted at a recent Nashville show marking the first time the two country icons have ever shared the stage.
 
The Honky Tonk Time Machine album pre-order is available HERE and fans can hear new songs "Código," "God and Country Music," and his Strait's latest radio single "Every Little Honky Tonk Bar" now HERE
 
"I'm really excited to have some new music coming out," shares Strait. "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."

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
