NASHVILLE, Tenn. – George Strait announced Friday his brand-new album Honky Tonk Time Machine will be released on March 29. It includes 12 original titles, plus Strait’s version of the Johnny Paycheck classic “Old Violin.”

Honky Tonk Time Machine will be Strait’s 30th career studio album. He wrote eight of the 13 tracks, including “Sing One with Willie” featuring Willie Nelson that the pair debuted at a recent show, marking the first time the two country icons have ever shared the stage.

“I’m really excited to have some new music coming out,” said Strait. “It’s been about two years since I’ve released a record. It was great writing with Bubba and Dean again and creating such a beautiful song with Bubba and Jeff Hyde. Also, it was a very special thing for me to be able to write and sing one with the legend Willie Nelson. I hope everyone enjoys listening to Honky Tonk Time Machine as much as I enjoyed making it.”
