As George Strait announced that he will be releasing a new album, Honky Tonk Time Machine, on March 29, the King of Country also shared a taste of what’s to come.
The latest offering from George, following the release of his single “Código,” is the track “God and Country Music.” The 66-year-old still has it. His distinct traditional vocals snuggly wrap themselves around each note as he sings about God and Country Music being staples in life.
“There’s always lost in the fountain / And darkness in the “I saw the light” / It’s livin’ in those small towns / In some church or backroad honky tonk tonight / It’s a dance between the sin and the salvation / Come hell or high water, there’s two things still worth savin’ / God and country music / God and country music,” he sings in the chorus.
If you listen closely, “God and Country Music,” written by Luke Laird, Barry Dean and Lori McKenna, reveals an extra set of vocals on the song, belonging to George’s grandson, Harvey Strait.

“I’m really excited to have some new music coming out,” said George in a statement. “It’s been about two years since I’ve released a record.” Actually, George’s last album release was Cold Beer Conversation, released in 2015. So, we couldn’t be more ready for some more George tunes.
