George Strait releases his brand new single, “Let It Go,” to country radio this Monday, April 20th. “Let It Go” is the first new music released by Strait since his No. 1-debuting 2013 album, Love Is Everything, and is the first new music since Strait returned to the studio following his historic, two-year The Cowboy Rides Away Tour.
Written by George Strait, Bubba Strait and Keith Gattis, “Let It Go” is the laid-back lead single off Strait’s upcoming studio album on longtime label home, MCA Records Nashville. WYCD’s Tim Roberts calls the song “another pure country hit for radio and for real country fans.”

It’s a tete-a-tete of the titans when Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill spends an hour in conversation with legendary newsman Dan Rather Tuesday, April 21, on The Big Interview. Broadcast on AXS TV, The Big Interview provides in-depth excursions into the lives and careers of some of America’s most influential entertainers.
In getting to know Gill, Rather converses with the singer-songwriter in his home studio amidst his extensive guitar collection, accompanies him to The Judge’s Court at Golf House Tennessee to view a statue of his father and learn about The Vinny golfing charity Gill founded, and stands with him on the hallowed stage of the Ryman Auditorium, long-time home of the Grand Ole Opry, of which Gill has been an ardent member since 1991.
With 20 Grammy awards to his credit, Gill has emerged as country music’s most eloquent and impassioned champion. He is both a world-class guitar picker and a wide-ranging songwriter whose compositions earned him entry into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005.
Among Rather’s other guests in The Big Interview series were Carlos Santana, Wynonna Judd, Don Rickles and Trisha Yearwood. Upcoming guests include Lindsey Buckingham, Josh Groban, Florida Georgia Line, Oscar-winning screenwriter Paul Haggis and Frankie Valli.
