The King of cool (and country by the way) is officially releasing his 39th studio album today.  Here for a Good Time was a song-writing collaboration of George, Bubba Strait and Dean Dillon.  George's official wesite had been offering an exclusive pre-order deal featuring the full CD, a limited editionT-shirt,  poster and an instant download of the first single, "Here for a Good Time".

George has done pretty well in his decades-long career, racking up the most number one singles of any....I said ANY artist in music history.  Yep, he beats the Beatles, Elvis and the Stones.

For good measure, he was voted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.

Here For A Good Time includes the following tracks:

1. Love’s Gonna Make It Alright Al Anderson / Chris Stapleton
2. Drinkin’ Man ` George Strait/Bubba Strait/Dean Dillon
3. Shame On Me George Strait/Bubba Strait
4. Poison Chuck Cannon/Allen Shamblin
5. Here For A Good Time George Strait/Bubba Strait/Dean Dillon
6. House Across The Bay George Strait/Bubba Strait/Dean Dillon
7. Lone Star Blues Gary Nicholson/Delbert McClinton
8. A Showman’s Life Jesse Winchester
9. Three Nails And A Cross George Strait/Bubba Strait/Dean Dillon/Bobby Boyd
10. Blue Marlin Blues George Strait/Bubba Strait/Dean Dillon
11. I’ll Always Remember You George Strait/Bubba Strait/Dean Dillon

Let's face it, George Strait is the foundation of a lot that's going on in Country Music these days.  He's a talented, prolific and genuinely nice artist and has already sealed his place as one of the best.  Can't wait to see what the label releases next.
