Two New Project From George Strait Forthcoming

Artist: George Strait
Album: Cold Beer Conversation
Label: Universal
Release date: Oct. 16, 2015 (tentatively)

While no formal label announcements have been made, it appears from early pre-order listings that George Strait is back with an all new set of recordings. After his big Cowboy Rides Away retirement tour, Strait was clear that he would continue to write and record new music- that he was only retiring from the road.  Cold Beer Conversation is available across several foreign Amazon sites for an October 16 release date.

Al Anderson, Ben Hayslip & Jimmy Yeary are co-writers on the title track according to a "friend in the know."

Strait has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time.His certifications from the RIAA include 13 multi-platinum, 33 platinum, and 38 gold albums. According to the RIAA, Strait is the 12th best-selling album recording artist in the United States overall.

Track listing:
1. It Was Love 
2. Cold Beer Conversation 
3. Let It Go 
4. Goin' Goin' Gone 
5. Something Going Down 
6. Take Me To Texas (From "Texas Rising" Mini Series Soundtrack)

Artist: George Strait
Album: The Cowboy Rides Away: Radio Broadcast
Label: Laser Media
Release Date: Nov. 13, 2015

Just as much mystery surrounds this second release, but from initial appearances, it looks like this will be a collection of some of his best early hits sung live from a single or culmination of different radio broadcasts. The cover is an early photo of Strait and that lends itself to that interpretation as well.

2. Six Pack To Go

4. Right Or Wrong
5. The Cowboy Rides Away
6. The Fireman
