George Strait to Release New Album Love Is Everything on May 14th (from the mailbag)


Preorder "Love is Everything" on Amazon

George Strait is set to release his highly anticipated 40th studio album,
Love Is Everything, on May 14 on longtime label home MCA Nashville. The
King of Country music rejoined veteran producer Tony Brown to co-produce the
album, which features 13 new tracks, including the Top 15 and climbing current
single “Give It All We Got Tonight.” Love Is Everything includes four
songs written or co-written by Strait, who penned many alongside his son Bubba
Strait and legendary songwriter Dean Dillon. Love Is Everything will be
available in stores and at all digital retailers.

With the new album’s first single “Give It All We Got Tonight” quickly
approaching Top 10 on the Country radio charts, the song is poised to become
Strait’s 60th #1 single. Fans and fellow Country artists recently started
campaigning for the “Sixty For Sixty” movement, which encourages local radio
stations to make the song his 60th #1 single before his 61st birthday on May 18.
Their efforts are certainly paying off as "Give It All We Got Tonight" is the
fastest certified Gold single of Strait’s incredible 32-year career. Fans can
tweet and Instagram their support with hashtag #60for60, as well as share posts
on Facebook.

In the midst of his two-year final U.S. tour, The Cowboy
Rides Away Tour,
Strait recently set an all-time attendance record at
Reliant Center when he closed out this year’s Houston Livestock Show &
Rodeo, performing to a crowd of 80,020 fans. The tour has so far sold out 16 of
16 venues played.
