Strait’s 30th Studio Album – Honky Tonk Time Machine – Due Out March 29th
King of Country Music George Strait released his brand new single “Every Little Honky Tonk Bar” with an iHeart world premiere on Monday (Feb 11th). “Every Little Honky Tonk Bar,” written by George Strait, Bubba Strait and longtime collaborator Dean Dillon, is also available on all digital and streaming partners with its official radio add date being February 19th.
The song follows the announcement of Strait’s upcoming 30th studio album release, Honky Tonk Time Machine, due out Friday, March 29th on MCA Nashville. Strait produced the album alongside Chuck Ainlay and wrote eight of the 13 tracks featured on the project. Honky Tonk Time Machine will be available on CD, LP and digitally.
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 ranking 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 and 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.
The Country Music Hall of Famer recently played his 21st and 22nd sold-out shows at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The Strait to Vegas series began with six shows in 2016 and extended with ten more in 2017. In 2018, Strait headlined Bayou Country Superfest to a sold out Mercedes-Benz Superdome crowd in New Orleans, Louisiana, two nights in Tulsa, Oklahoma and one night in Austin, Texas. This year, fans can catch Strait at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on March 30th, Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio on June 8th, two additional engagements of Strait to Vegas at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 23rd and 24th, and Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas on November 22nd and 23rd.
