George Strait to Release "Strait Out of the Box: Part 2" 3-CD Box Set Through Wal-Mart

by VVN Music

The King of Country, George Strait, is going the exclusive root with his new hits box, Strait Out of the Box: Part 2.

The new album will be released on November exclusively in Wal-Mart stores and, although a track list has not been put out, the Wal-Mart site shows a very attractive $18.98 list price and an $11.88 sale price for the 3-CD set.

The original 4-CD box set was released in 1995 as a 4-CD/72-track collection with Strait's hits and important album cuts from 1976 to 1995.  Part 2 is 3-CDs/56-song set that brings everything up-to-date from 1996 to 2016.

Just as the original box included two new songs that went on to become major hits, Check Yes or No and I Know She Still Loves Me, Part 2 also has two new songs. The tally on the other cuts is 36 hit singles, including 26 that went to number 1, and 18 album cuts. 

Strait has retired from touring but does have a residency in Las Vegas. His latest album, Cold Beer Conversation, was released last year.

We'll have the track list when it becomes available.
