George Strait Previews ‘Cowboys And Dreamers’ With ‘MIA Down In MIA’

On the heels of sharing the news of his 31st studio album during a sold-out show at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium earlier this month, Country Music Hall of Famer George Strait released the first song from his upcoming album, Cowboys And Dreamers, called “MIA Down in MIA.”

Cowboys And Dreamers, set for release on September 6, is available to pre-save/pre-add at

Written by Adam Craig and Dean Dillion, and produced by Strait with Chuck Ainlay, “MIA Down in MIA” features the Texas native’s Ace in the Hole Band, including longtime fiddle player Gene Elder.

“I’m dedicating this record to my longtime manager and friend Erv Woolsey and my longtime fiddle player and friend Gene Elders (a player on four of these tracks), who we lost on the same day, March 20, 2024, as well as my longtime friend and road manager Tom Foote, who we lost on April 29, 2024,” said Strait. “I will never forget all of the good times we had together. May they rest in peace with our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Cowboys And Dreamers will feature 13 new songs, including “Honky Tonk Hall Of Fame” featuring Chris Stapleton, which the pair debuted during the sold-out show at Lucas Oil Stadium on May 4, and his Strait’s rendition of Waylon Jennings‘ “Waymore’s Blues.”

The Texas Troubadour will continue his series of stadium shows next Saturday, May 25 at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, Iowa.
