George Strait to Release 30th Studio Album, “Honky Tonk Time Machine,” on March 29 [Listen to New Song Now]

George Strait will release his 30th studio album, Honky Tonk Time Machine, on March 29.

The new album features 13 songs, including 12 originals and a cover of Johnny Paycheck’s “Old Violin.”

George co-penned eight of the tracks, including a duet with Willie Nelson, “Sing One With Willie.” Longtime collaboration Dean Dillon co-penned seven songs, while George’s son, Bubba, co-penned 10 tracks.

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

George’s grandson, Harvey, is featured on the track “God and Country Music,” which you can listen to below. The tune follows the 2018 release of the album’s first song, “Código.”
