The album will be available exclusively through Apple Music and Wal-Mart. Here’s a track listing, provided from Windmill’s Country:

In light of the album, there will be no Female Friday. I will have a review of this as soon as I can!

P.S. As a George Strait fan, yes!

  1. Well that is some bull crap. Yet again another male news article replacing a female article. 😉 I am just kidding. I think it is pretty cool that he is going to be with Kacey Musgraves. That should be good.

  2. 🙂 well, Friday already promised to be a big release day, With both Don Henley and Clint Black releasing new albums. Not to mention Thomas Rhett, whose new album will probably be a train wreck if the singles are any indication. Add to that a George Strait album, and it’s going to be a crowded release day. I want to get more reviews out more quickly, as well as give Jamie Lin Wilson the time and coverage she deserves. Oh, and while I’m on the subject of album releases, as for Thomas Rhett, I’d hate to be the guy releasing an album opposite George Strait! Yes, George Strait and Kacey Musgraves, that would be an excellent show.

  3. This is surprising, but very welcome. My guess is that probably had something to do with “Let It Go” bombing on radio, and by the time its chart run ended they weren’t prepared to release another single, much less the album. But I’ll be looking forward to it.
