Editors' Notes As one of the best-selling artists of all time, in any genre, George Strait could do pretty much anything he wants—which he did when he retired from touring in 2014. But you can't keep a good cowboy down for long, and Strait not only returned to the road but has hit one of the more prolific periods of his career, writing most of the tracks on his 29th studio LP. And though the King of Country might be well into his sixties, Honky Tonk Time Machine feels as fresh as ever—traditional without being a clichéd throwback, and a perfect display of one of country's most iconic voices. Strait burns up the barn on the title track, veers south of the border on "Codigo," and slips into balladry on "Some Nights." And proving that even legends have FOMO, Strait finally achieves his lifelong dream of singing with Willie Nelson on the album's well-titled closer "Sing One With Willie.”
