George Strait Announces ‘Strait Out of the Box: Part 2’ Box Set
George Strait has partnered with Walmart for an exclusive new box set that will emerge in time for the holiday season. The country icon will release Strait Out of the Box: Part 2 on Nov. 18 via an exclusive distribution deal with the retail giant.
The follow-up to the 8X platinum-selling Strait Out of the Box from 1995, the new collection culls tracks from Strait's career spanning from 1996 to the present.
The three-disc set features 56 tracks, including 26 No. 1 hit singles, other radio hits, 18 album cuts and two new songs, including Strait's new single, "Goin' Goin' Gone." Strait personally selected the songs that make up the new collection.
Strait has created one of the biggest and most important legacies in country music history since his debut single, "Unwound," in 1981. He has sold more than 70 million records and scored 60 No. 1 hits — more than any other artist in history. He is the most-nominated artist in the history of the CMA Awards and was the first country music artist honored with Billboard’s Legend of Live Award. Strait was named CMA Entertainer of the Year in 1989, 1990 and 2013, and ACM Entertainer of the Year in 1990 and 2014. He is also a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
The country icon retired from active touring in 2014, after a two-year farewell tour, but fans can still see him live in Las Vegas at a handful of dates at the T-Mobile Arena. Those dates are set to take place in December of 2016 and February of 2017.
Strait Out of the Box: Part 2 is currently available for pre-order exclusively via Walmart online.
