George Strait Unleashes His ‘Twang’ Early

Fans don’t have to wait quite as long for George Strait‘s 38th album. The country icon has moved up the release date for his upcoming CD, ‘Twang,’ to August 11.

The reason for the earlier date is because of the album’s already impressive success. Its first single, ‘Living for the Night,’ hit the Top 15 on the country charts after just three weeks. The song was written by George, his son Bubba Strait and songwriting legend Dean Dillon.

“It makes a papa proud to have my son contributing to the creation of this record,” says George. “We had a great time writing with each other and then Dean adding his magic made it even more special. I hope the people that buy this record have as much fun listening to it as I had making it.”

‘Living’ is the first song George has penned since ‘I Can’t See Texas From Here’ from his 1982 debut album, ‘Strait Country.’ It seems the 57-year-old entertainer is getting back into songwriting, as he also co-wrote two more songs on ‘Twang’ — ‘He’s Got That Something Special’ and ‘Out Of Sight Out Of Mind.’ Bubba Strait also has songwriting credits on ‘Arkansas Dave.’
