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.

Lone Star Outdoors Show for Saturday, September 1st

No Comments

We discuss the recent USFWS Waterfowl Survey Report and what it means for the upcoming duck season. A couple species such as pintail and gadwall really struggled. Ducks Unlimited Chief Scientist Tom Moorman makes his return to the show to break down the report species by species.

Then we check in with Senator Ted Cruz. We discuss the SAVES ACT, 2nd Amendment, Public Lands and State Control and his running opposition Beto O Rourke’s socialist running platform.

We round out the show by talking prescribed burns during the growing season with biologist Will Mosely of the Noble Research Institute. Burning is a great way to revitalize your property but most people likely don’t do it when Will recommends it.

Join us Saturday morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio.
