Hear George Strait's New Song 'MIA Down In MIA'

(EBM) On the heels of sharing the news of his 31st studio album with fans during a sold-out show at Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium earlier this month, Country Music Hall of Fame member George Strait debuts the first release from Cowboys And Dreamers with "MIA Down in MIA." Cowboys And Dreamers is set for release Sept. 6.

Written by Adam Craig and Dean Dillon, and produced by Strait with Chuck Ainlay, "MIA Down in MIA" features the Texas native's Ace in the Hole Band, including longtime fiddle player Gene Elder.

"I'm dedicating this record to my longtime manager and friend Erv Woolsey and my longtime fiddle player and friend Gene Elders (a player on four of these tracks), who we lost on the same day, March 20, 2024, as well as my longtime friend and road manager Tom Foote, who we lost on April 29, 2024," shares Strait. "I will never forget all of the good times we had together. May they rest in peace with our Lord Jesus Christ."

The follow-up to Honky Tonk Time Machine, Strait's 27th No. 1 Billboard Country album, Cowboys And Dreamers will feature 13 new songs, including "Honky Tonk Hall Of Fame" featuring Chris Stapleton, which the pair debuted during the sold-out show at Lucas Oil Stadium on May 4, and his own rendition of Waylon Jennings' "Waymore's Blues."

The Texas Troubadour will continue his series of stadium shows next Saturday, May 25 at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa, followed by additional dates this summer in Charlotte, N.C.; East Rutherford, N.J.; College Station, Texas; Salt Lake City, Utah; Detroit, Mich.; and Chicago, Ill., before supersizing his longstanding Strait to Vegas show with a December date at Las Vegas' Allegiant Stadium to mark the 37th installment of the engagement.
