George Strait Partners With Walmart for ‘Strait Out of the Box: Part 2′
George Strait is partnering with Walmart to release a new hits collection, Strait Out of the Box: Part 2. The project will be available exclusively at Walmart on Nov. 18.
Strait Out of the Box: Part 2 will be made up of three discs, featuring a total of 56 tracks: 36 hit singles (including 26 No. 1s and his newest single, "Goin' Goin' Gone"), 18 album cuts and two brand-new tunes. A complete track listing has not been revealed, but all of the songs contained in the collection were curated by Strait himself, according to a press release, from music released between 1996 and 2016.
Strait Out of the Box: Part 2 picks up where Strait Out of the Box, Strait's 1995 box set, left off. That four-disc collection features music released by Strait between 1976 and 1995, and has, to date, sold more than 8 million copies, making it one of the best-selling musical box sets of all time.
Strait's newest single, “Goin’ Goin’ Gone,” comes from his most recent new album, Cold Beer Conversation, released in September of 2015, just days after Strait announced the project while sharing plans for his Las Vegas shows. The record is part of a five-album deal that he signed with longtime label MCA in 2013.
Strait Out of the Box: Part 2 is available for pre-order via Walmart.com. Strait’s next concerts in Vegas are scheduled for Dec. 2 and Dec. 3, 2016. He will also be performing in Sin City on Feb. 17 and 18, 2017.
