Monday, February 18, 2008

April 1st will be a happy day for country music fans. Now, fans have enjoyed this event for 26 studio albums, 5 greatest hits/compilation albums, 2 Christmas albums, 1 box set, and even 1 soundtrack album.

Have you guessed it? Well, ok, I know the title gave it away. A new George Strait album will be released April 1st titled "Troubadour."

The first single, "I Saw God Today" has broke his personal record for highest debut single. #19 on the charts. Amazing. The single will be available tomorrow February 19 for DRM-Free download from

What a song. If you haven't heard it yet, you will very soon no doubt. Here are the lyrics to the chorus:

I've been to church
I've read the book
I know he's here
But I don't look
Near as often as I should
Yeah, I know
I should His fingerprints are everywhere
I just slowed down to stop and stare
Opened my eyes and man I swear
I saw God today

The chorus alone doesn't do it justice, you have got to hear this one. Wow.

Strait never stops amazing me. He is one of the elite artists in country music. There isn't a song out there that I don't like from The King of Country Music. There is just something about him that makes his music so special.

The upcoming CD, brings about some notable collaborations including a duet with Patty Loveless, and long time songwriting partner, Dean Dillon. Twelve tracks will be featured on the new release.

Thanks forthe correction, the 2006 release was a special Hallmark release, not from MCA-Nashville...
