– George Strait will release his 40th studio album, "Love Is Everything," on May 14 on MCA.
Long-time producer Tony Brown produced the disc and its 13 new tracks. Among them is the Top 15 and climbing current single Give It All We Got Tonight.
The release includes four songs written or co-written by Strait, who penned many alongside his son Bubba Strait and songwriter Dean Dillon.
The single could become Strait's 60th number one single. Fans and fellow country artists recently started campaigning for the Sixty For Sixty movement, which encourages local radio stations to make the song his 60th number 1 before his 61st birthday on May 18. The song is the fastest certified Gold single of Strait's 32-year career.
In the midst of his two-year final U.S. tour, The Cowboy Rides Away Tour, Strait recently set an all-time attendance record at Reliant Center when he closed out this year's Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo before 80,020 fans. The tour has so far sold out 16 of 16 venues played.
