Seven years in 2012, George Strait shocked fans saying he was retiring from touring. “I always had it in the back of my mind, when I turned 60, it might be the time to start thinking about it," Strait said at the time that he didn’t want to book a tour where nobody came. I can't imagine that ever happening but that was his decision.Strait insisted that he wasn't retiring entirely from country music, but instead wanted to focus solely on making albums. "I’m still going to try and make a record every year,” he said . “I’m feeling a little antsy about getting back in the studio.”
George is living up to that promise releasing "Every Little Honky Tonk Bar" today! So good to hear his doing what he does so well. Country music!
