George Strait plans to release a followup to his 1995 career-spanning box set later this year. The country legend will make Strait Out of the Box: Part 2 available exclusively through Walmart beginning Nov. 18.

The new three-disc compilation will feature 56 songs from 1996 to 2016, including 36 hit singles and 26 No. 1 hits. It will also feature two brand new singles, including his current radio release  “Goin’ Goin’ Gone.”

The release will wrap up an eventful year for the technically “retired” star. After completing a whirlwind final tour in 2014, he returned to the stage for a limited-time residency in Las Vegas. The set of dates, supported by Kacey Musgraves, will wrap up his time at the Las Vegas Arena in February.

Last week, Strait also performed at the 2016 Americana Music Awards and Honors as a salute to his friend and longtime songwriter Jim Lauderdale.

Although Strait fans only have a few more chances to see him live, this new box set lets you enjoy all of his best music with a flip of a switch. Plus, it’s coming out just in time for the holidays!
