I’ve got all this Twang and I can’t even give it away.
Actually, I can, but I’ll need your help. MCA Nashville sent one extra copy of the new George Strait album (out tomorrow) on the condition that I pass it along to one of my readers. If you’re reading this, that’s you, and you’ve got as much right to it as anyone else. Might as well enter the contest!
Having heard the album, I can tell you that it’s one of the most adventuresome Strait collections in recent memory, but also one that is of a piece with the rest of his discography. That may sound pretty cryptic right now, but I’ll write more about it in the next day or two, then all will be revealed. Or you’ll just scratch your head and wonder what I’m going on about.
You don’t have to wait for me, though. You can enter now.
As you’ve almost certainly heard, Twang includes George’s all-Spanish rendition of “El Rey.” I don’t know if anyone saw that one coming, so for your entry in the giveaway I want to know what other unexpected things you think George should try now that he’s showing a bit more willingness to experiment. An album of classic country covers? Breakdancing in a music video? Just comment with your novel ideas.
It doesn’t matter if your suggestion is serious or goofy, or even if you want to skip my topic and riff on Strait in your own way: the requirements are pretty loose. But you do have to get some sort of Strait-related comment in by the end of Thursday (Pacific Time), as I’ll be randomly choosing a winner on Friday morning.
Just under 96 hours to go. Better get posting!
Added 8/14: The winner is grumpyoldman. Thanks to everyone for playing.
