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, George 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 also 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 in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.
Now, with Strait’s March 29 release and the 30th studio album of his career, Honky Tonk Time Machine is already receiving critical acclaim from outlets including the Los Angeles Times noting “George Strait calls his new album Honky Tonk Time Machine, but it’s hard to think of a country star less in need of one of those,” while Rolling Stone calls it “a signature set of Texas soul and swing.” Produced by George Strait and Chuck Ainley, Honky Tonk Time Machine includes 13 tracks, eight of which were written by Strait himself. Stand-out tracks include “Sing One with Willie” featuring Willie Nelson, Strait’s version of the Johnny Paycheck classic “Old Violin,” and his current Top 20-and-climbing radio hit, “Every Little Honky Tonk Bar.” Perhaps the most notable and sentimental highlights of the album is “God and Country Music,” featuring very special guest vocalist, Strait’s grandson, Harvey Strait.
