George Strait To Release New Album ‚ÄúLove Is Everything‚ÄĚ May 14

Posted by Kristina Burton on 04/11/2013
George Strait is set to release his highly anticipated 40th studio album, Love Is Everything, on May 14. 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.
