It’s not just wishful thinking, and it’s not skewing the numbers to paint a sunny picture. With his new album ‘Honky Tonk Time Machine,’ “King” George Strait is back at the top of the country genre, and in multiple ways. And that’s not all George Strait fans have to celebrate. He’s showing surprising traction on radio as well.
Honky Tonk Time Machine
It seems strange to characterize George Strait’s latest record Honky Tonk Time Machine as a return to his roots. After all, this is George Strait. But nonetheless, it’s a fair accreditation to make, and a welcome conclusion to settle upon when you appreciate the authority with which George Strait can deliver a honky tonk heartbreaker.
With little prospect for radio play, George Strait appears to just be doing what he wants to do on Honky Tonk Time Machine, which is traveling back in time to when country was country. “I’m really excited to have some new music coming out,” shares Strait. “It’s been about two years since I’ve released a record.”
George Strait has an album of new music on the way for the first time in four years, and it will be called Honky Tonk Time Machine. This was the country legend’s pronouncement from the stage of the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas this weekend as he played a round of residency shows.
