George Strait's 'Strait Out of The Box Part 2' was released this past Friday and the box set includes a Strait and Jamey Johnson co-write entitled 'Kicked Outta Country'.

The title of the song comes from an off the cuff remark Johnson made to Strait at a charity golf outing. You can listen to the song in the above YouTube video link and check out the song's lyrics here:

I just got the news today, the record I sent them they threw it away
It don’t fit the format, don’t make the list
They said I’m too old, won’t even be missed

 

It happened to Jones, and even The Hag
Willie and Waylon, and the great Johnny Cash
They all got kicked outta country back then
But then one day country came calling again

 

Cash stomped out the footlights
Haggard, he had a ball
And Willie and Waylon, they stole the nation
And Jones never showed up at all

 

They lived what the wrote, and wrote what they sang
So getting kicked outta country didn’t hurt a thing
Getting kicked outta country didn’t hurt a thing

 

I just wrote a new song today
I pulled out my old guitar, and I started to play
Pressing my fingers into the strings
I felt the feeling a country song brings

 

I did some Jones, and one for The Hag
Waylon and Willie, and the great Johnny Cash
They all got kicked outta country back then
But then one day country came calling again

 

Cash stomped out the footlights
Haggard, he had a ball
And Willie and Waylon, they stole the nation
And Jones showed up after all

 

They lived what the wrote, and wrote what they sang
So getting kicked outta country didn’t hurt a thing
Getting kicked outta country didn’t hurt a thing

 

It don’t really matter, because I ain’t gonna change
Cause getting kicked outta country, won’t hurt a thing
