George Strait is pulling out all the stops for his new album “Here For A Good Time.” The album, which is scheduled to be released on September 6th, confirmed to Country Weekly that Faith Hill will be part on one of the tracks. She’ll be the backing vocals on “A Showman’s Life,” a song about the good and hard times of a musician. The song is a cover of a version previously on Gary Allan’s album “See If I Care,”  which had featured Willie Nelson.

This isn’t the only new studio recording fans will hear of Faith Hill this year. She’s also on a duet with husband Tim McGraw on his new album. She returned to the studio in March to start recording her own album as well.
