With his new album, ‘Here for a Good Time,’ just a few weeks from store shelves, it’s time for George Strait to start getting ready to hit the road again.

As he revealed in a recent announcement, that’s exactly what he has planned for 2012 — and he’s bringing Martina McBride with him.

“I love Martina,” Strait explained. “She’s been on our tours before and she’s great. I’m really looking forward to the tour. Martina will definitely make it a special night.”

No cities or dates have been announced for the tour, which kicks off in January. ‘Here for a Good Time’ is scheduled for a September 6 release, with McBride’s latest album, ‘Eleven,’ following on October 11.
