New George Strait Songs Will Be on Upcoming Box Set, ‘Strait Out of the Box, Part 2’

BY MATT ALPERT

 

Two new George Strait songs will appear on the King of Country Music’s upcoming box set, Strait Out of the Box, Part 2. 

The songs include “Kicked Outta Country,” co-written by Strait and Jamey Johnson. Considering that Johnson co-wrote the song and Strait’s recent comments about modern country, we have a hunch that tune will be about today’s pop-country not sounding like, well, country.

The other new song is “You Gotta Go Through Hell,” penned by Strait, his son Bubba and prolific songwriter Dean Dillon.

Strait is set to perform at the 2016 CMA Awards on Wednesday (Nov. 2), and he may perform one of these two new songs.

The singer also revealed the track listing for the upcoming box set. It’s chock-full of hits and deep cuts spanning from 1996-2016. Look for Strait Out of the Box, Part 2. on Nov. 18.
