Strait Country will launch on XM satellite radio April 1 to coincide with the release of George’s latest album, Troubadour. And as the title of the channel promises, it’s all George all the time. The channel will run through May 31 and will feature songs from George’s catalog as well as exclusive interviews and George-related programming. “It’s always a thrill to hear one of your songs played on the radio,” says George, “but to have XM Radio dedicate an entire channel to my music is just amazing.” George joins Led Zeppelin and Michael Jackson as the only artists to have their own XM Radio channels.
