Hear George Strait's New Song 'God and Country Music'

On Friday (Feb. 1), George Strait released his brand new song "God and Country Music," a tender ode to country music and faith and how they both shape us.

"It's living in those small towns, in some church or backroad honky tonk tonight," Strait sings. "It's a dance between the sin and the salvation/ Come hell or high water, there's two things still worth saving: God and country music."

The song follows Strait's tequila-fueled "Código," which he shared late last year. Both songs will be included on Strait's forthcoming album Honky Tonk Time Machine.

Strait debuted "God and Country Music" during his Strait to Vegas residency last year.

The King of Country will play a concert at Atlanta's Mercedes Benz Stadium on March 30 with Chris Stapleton, Ashley McBrydeand Chris Janson and he'll headline the Buckeye Country Superfest in Columbus, Ohio on June 8, 2019.

In November, the country legend will play his home state at the new Dickie's arena in Fort Worth, Texas.

'God and Country Music' Lyrics:

God and country music
Like whiskey and a prayer
Like Johnny Cash's arm 'round Billy Graham
God and country music
They both never really change
You find 'em where you need 'em
Where you stand

There's always lost in the found
Darkness in the 'I Saw the Light'
It's living in those small towns
In some church or backroad honky tonk tonight
It's a dance between the sin and the salvation
Come hell or high water, there's two things still worth saving
God and country music
God and country music

God and country music
They both show you the truth
You see the low of the valley
and the highs of the mountains too
Folded hands and guitar strings
jukebox preachers and angels sing
Call they like they knew ya
Between the hell and the hallelujah

There's always lost in the found
Darkness in the 'I Saw the Light'
It's still living in those small towns
In some church or backroad honky tonk tonight
It's a dance between the sin and the salvation
Come hell or high water, there's two things still worth saving
God and country music
God and country music

There's always lost in the found
Darkness in the 'I Saw the Light'
It's still living in those small towns
In some church or backroad honky tonk tonight
It's a dance between the sin and the salvation
Come hell or high water, there's two things still worth saving
God and country music
God and country music
God and country music
