According to fan reports, Strait first announced the arrival of his new family member during his  show at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sept. 10. The performance was part of a limited live residency featuring support from Kacey Musgraves. The span of dates will wrap up in 2017.

Later this year, Strait will release Strait Out of the Box: Part 2. The 56-song box set, which features selections from the past 20 years, also features two brand new songs. One of those new tracks is Strait’s current single, “Goin’, Goin’, Gone.”

Fans can purchase the box set exclusively through Walmart beginning Nov. 18, just in time for the holidays.
