George Strait Confirms Faith Hill Will Appear on New Album
George Strait has confirmed that Faith Hill will be joining him on his next album. The two country greats will sing together on a song called 'A Showman's Life' when 'Here for a Good Time' is available on September 6. Fans can pre-order the album now at Strait's website.
According to Country Weekly, the song covers the highs and lows of a musician's life on the road. Hill contributes background vocals on the song, which was originally recorded as duet by Gary Allan and Willie Nelson for Allan's 2003 album 'See if I Care.' It's one of the few songs on Strait's album that was not co-written by the legend, his son Bubba Strait and Dean Dillon.
Nobody told me about this part / They told me all about the pretty girls / And the wine and the money and the good times / No mention of the wear and tear on an old honky-tonker’s heart," Strait sings on the song.
This is his 39th studio album. The title track is his 89th radio single, and his second highest chart debut behind only 'I Saw God Today.' The album was recorded at the Shrimpboat Sound Studio in Key West, Fla., the same place he recorded each of his last three award-winning albums.
