The King of Country is releasing a triple disc box set collection, spanning 56 songs from the second half of his legendary career. The songs are a collection of singles, George Strait’s personal favorites, along with a couple of new songs. The box set, which will be available exclusively at Walmart, is a must have for any fan of country music.
Although he’s more akin to selling out stadiums and arenas across the globe, this new release was celebrated with a small, intimate concert that lasted nearly two hours—Harkening back to the days when he was first breaking in to the industry. Strait returned to Gruene Hall, a venue he hadn’t performed at in over 30 years.
Apparently having 60 No. 1 hits makes it hard to play anywhere but massive arenas.
