George Strait will give a special performance live from Texas on Wednesday, Nov. 16 to celebrate his upcoming box set, Strait Out of the Box: Part 2.

Everybody can live stream it for free on Strait.WranglerNetwork.com starting at 7 p.m. Check back with Wide Open Country for coverage of the special event.

George Strait playing again is pretty darn cool. It’s even cooler that he’s live-streaming it for all to see. He retired from touring in 2014, but still makes a few special performances (including Las Vegas) every now and then. He’s got two more Vegas shows coming up in December and February 2017.

George Strait is releasing his box set on Nov. 18, featuring three discs and 56 cuts. Walmart has exclusive rights to sell the set. Strait curated the collection himself, which features 36 hit singles, 18 album cuts and two new songs.

This second box set focuses on his career from the mid-1990s onward. Oh, how nice it must be to have a career so massive you need several box sets for it. They don’t call him King George for nothing!
