George Strait fans, the wait is over. At his Dec. 7 show in Las Vegas, the King of Country announced that he'll be releasing a new album titled Honky-Tonk Time Machine. 

On Friday (Dec. 7), Strait released his new Tequila-inspired song "Código," which he penned with his son Bubba Strait and longtime collaborator Dean Dillon. But that wasn't the only new music the country superstar shared that day. Rolling Stone reports that Strait performed two more new songs during his Strait to Vegas residency: "Every Little Honky Tonk Bar" and "God and Country Music," which will both be included on the new album.

There's no word yet on when Honky-Tonk Time Machine will be released.
