As he is affectionately known as “The King” or “The King of Country Music”. George Strait has reissued his 1995 boxed set, Strait Out of the Box: Part 1, today (Sept. 13th) just in time for those already shopping for Christmas. I know you’re out there. I know some folks are done with their Christmas shopping before Halloween. If you haven’t already gotten this box set for yourself, do it. Treat yourself.
The 72-track collection spans George’s early career from 1981 to 1995, and features 31 No. 1 singles. Some of the songs included are “You Look So Good in Love,” “All My Ex’s Live in Texas” and “Check Yes or No.” And what makes the collection even more special is the fact that each track was personally selected by Strait himself.
In addition to the physical boxed set, a revamped Strait Out of the Box: Part 1 & 2 playlist is available to stream, and fans can watch George’s full collection of music videos, newly remastered in HD.
But, there is a small catch for those who want this box set for themselves or as a gift. The box set is exclusively available for purchase at Walmart stores.
George will also be featured on the official soundtrack for Country Music – A Film By Ken Burns, which is also released today. The eight-part PBS documentary spanning the history of country music will air on PBS on Sunday (September 15th) at 7 p.m. CT.
