Tuesday, June 19, 2018 – Garth Brooks released a surprise new single today, "All Day Long," from a forthcoming album slated for 2019.

Brooks, who helped write the song said to be a honky tonker, also plans "an imminent tour," although there was no word on when that would happen.

Co-written by Brooks, the track evokes Brooks sing-a-longs. He also released an exclusive bonus track, "The Road I'm On," for those pre-ordering the disc. The song will open the tour.

"From the very first lick, this song is a party," said Brooks on his live online broadcast "Inside Studio B" last night. "Country radio, uptempo honky-tonk and summer go soooooooo good together," he said.

Concert Review: Turner pleases the traditionalists – Josh Turner is a hard-working citizen, a man of faith and a loyal father and husband. He also happens to be one of the youngest members inducted to the Grand Ole Opry. In short, he is the embodiment of country music's champion of the everyman. This night was special for him. He was celebrating an anniversary with his wife and his 18th with his label MCA.... »»»
