During an interview with Pollstar in April 2022, Strait disclosed that he had left his longtime record label, MCA Records.
Strait stated, “I just re-signed with MCA Records and I’m ecstatic about that and the fact that they still want me around.” “They are the only record label I’ve ever worked for, and presumably the only one I will ever have. “When the time comes, they can bury me beneath the building. He stated in the interview that he intends to “make another record soon.”
