ABC/Image Group LAReba McEntire pays tribute to the First Lady of Country Music, Tammy Wynette, in the latest preview track from her new album, Stronger Than the Truth.

The Country Music Hall of Famer says “Tammy Wynette Kind of Pain” is exactly what she envisioned for her hardcore country record.

“Wonderful song, wonderful song!” Reba says of the track co-written by singer/songwriter Brandy Clark. “It mentions all the song titles of Tammy’s.”

“Stand by Your Man,” “D-I-V-O-R-C-E,” “Crying in the Rain,” “Til’ I Can Make It on My Own,” and “Golden Ring” are all part of the song that remembers the late legend whose life and music was often synonymous with heartbreak.

“And this ain’t no regular kind of hurt,” Reba explains. “This is a ‘Tammy Wynette Kind of Pain,’ so you can just imagine how this lady [in the song] is hurtin’.”

“Tammy Wynette Kind of Pain” is available to stream or download now, ahead of the April 5 release of Stronger Than the Truth. You can also check out a behind-the-scenes video in the studio of Reba recording the song.

UMG NashvilleGeorge Strait is following up his Cold Beer Conversation with a shot of tequila.

The Country Music Hall of Famer returns with his first new music since his 2015 album with the new track “Codigo,” which immortalizes the brand of tequila in which he’s a partner. King George co-wrote the tune with his son Bubba Strait and his longtime collaborator, Dean Dillon.

“A little sip and you’re ready to roll/I’m talkin’ ‘bout Codigo,” George sings on the composition that almost sounds like an extended jingle for the brand.

This weekend, the country legend plays his 19th and 20th sold-out shows at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with more concerts to come in 2019.

You can stream or download “Codigo” now, or check out an audio-only version on YouTube.

ABC/Image Group LA George Strait is mourning the loss of his longtime drummer Michael A. Kennedy, who was killed in a traffic accident over the holiday weekend. The 59-year-old’s vehicle collided with a tractor trailer on I-40 in Nashville on Friday, according to the Tennessean.

Kennedy had played drums in Strait’s Ace in the Hole Band for nearly three decades.

“Hard to put into words how much Mike’s passing has affected us all,” Strait posted on Instagram, along with photos of Kennedy behind his drum kit.

“Our hearts are broken. It’s going to be very strange not being able to look over and see him there in his spot on stage and very emotional as well I’m sure for all of us and also his fans.”

“The band will never be the same,” the Country Music Hall of Famer went on. “A part of us is gone forever. We all loved Mike and will miss him terribly. He was just as solid a friend to us all as he was a drummer, and that was damn solid.”

“Our hearts and prayers are with his family,” he closed. “The Lord has him now. Rest In Peace my friend.”

Strait’s next dates are December 7 and 8 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
