George Strait, the King of Country Music, has just released a new song entitled “God And Country Music,” which will be featured on “Honky Tonk Time Machine,” his forthcoming album. Not only did he surprise fans with a new track drop, but in another cool twist, the song also features his grandson George Harvey Strait III.

“Honky Tonk Time Machine” will hit the shelves on March 29, 2019. Co-produced by Strait together with Chuck Ainlay, it’s said to feature 12 original songs as well as a cover of “Old Violin,” a Johnny Paycheck classic.

Shared on the George Strait YouTube channel, the song was published on January 31, 2019, taking fans completely by surprise. Co-written by Lori McKenna, Luke Laird, and Barry Dean, “God and Country Music” features the vocal talents of Strait’s grandson as a special guest. It’s not the first time he’s recorded with a young member of his family (remember when Strait got his son Bubba to sing on “Heartland,” on the “Pure Country” soundtrack?) nor does the style stray from Strait’s classic repertoire. A traditional style, easy-going song, “God and Country Music” offers fans a familiarity they’ve come accustomed to, and it’s a winning formula. With more number one hits than any other country artist, Strait’s new track and pending album are sure to be award winners with his following, not to mention the industry he’s helped shape. From his home in the Texas Hill Country to his ranch near Cotulla, to his residency in Las Vegas, this Texas troubadour continues to spin a tale through his tracks that result in the celebration of country music and his part as a legend of the genre. You can hear his newest song “God and Country Music” in the video link above, and get ready to purchase what’s sure to be an amazing new album with the “Honky Tonk Time Machine” release in March.
