Faith Hill Lends Her Voice to George Strait’s New Album
Faith Hill will be singing background vocals on Country Music Hall of Famer George Strait‘s upcoming 39th studio album, ‘Here for a Good Time,’ Country Weekly confirms. On the track called ‘A Showman’s Life,’ the blond beauty will sing the part originally sung by Willie Nelson in his 2003 recording of the tune with Gary Allan.
Written by Jesse Winchester, ‘A Showman’s Life’ waxes poetic on the highs and lows of a musician’s life on the road, from the “pretty girls … wine … and good times” to the “wear and tear on an old honky-tonker’s heart.”
King George’s new album is due in stores September 6. The 59-year-old country icon co-wrote seven of the project’s 11 tracks, alongside his son Bubba Strait and famed songwriter Dean Dillon.
This is the first new music we’ve heard from Faith since ‘Give In to Me,’ her song on the ‘Country Strong’ movie soundtrack, released last year.
