The "Sevens" could be lucky for Garth Brooks this summer. The country superstar will release his new album "Sevens" on Aug. 7, the same date as a free concert in Central Park in New York. HBO will broadcast the concert live. Current plans are to release a new single on July 7. The single has yet to be picked, according to Brooks. He said in a recent, half-hour press conference in Boston the disc - his seventh, hence the title - will feature the different sides of his music.  ...

Duets (Jul 2007)
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are in the midst of their third ultra-successful tour together, dubbed Soul2Soul 2007. During the course of the concert, McGraw and Hill both enjoy their own stints on the circular stage with the first couple of country music performing duets together as well, such as "Angry All the Time" and "It's Your Love."

Garth Brooks said in October he retired or did he? He talked at the end of last year about hanging it up by the end of 2000 and apparently seemed to be following through. With great fanfare on a day celebrating his sale of 100 million units - the most by any recording act in history - Brooks also said he was packing it in.

Garth Brooks in the life of Chris Gaines... Chris Gaines, aka Garth Brooks, releases "In the Life of Chris Gaines" Sept. 28. The album is probably the most anticipated debut ever from any artist. Of course, this isn't any artist. Brooks has adopted the persona of Australian native Gaines, a pop singer who has endured much personal tragedy. But he also has done quite well thank you on the charts, selling tons of albums. Now comes a greatest hits package, which is, in reality, the very first album ever released by Gaines. This is all part of a movie coming out next year starring Brooks.  ...
It's the music, Garth (Jan 1999)
Congratulations are due Garth Brooks on the initial success of his "Double Live" disc. The CD was the biggest selling release of any kind ever in its first week of sales in November. The 25 songs, including three new ones, represent a cross-section of Brooks' musical career. At just about exactly the same time, Brooks completed a three-year world tour in Texas and now is going to take a break. Brooks may become further involved in other artistic endeavors, including developing movies. Frankly, the break away from music may be a good for those of us suffering from oversaturation.  ...
Caveat emptor when it comes to "The Limited Series" of Garth Brooks Caveat emptor when considering whether to dip into your pocketbook for "The Limited Series," Garth Brooks new attempt to rake in the sales. The six-disc set contains each of his first six albums along with one new song for each disc. Some songs were new, others recorded around the same time as that particular disc. The fault is not with the new songs at all - they in fact are almost uniformly of fine quality.  ...
