Brooks goes "All Day Long"
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: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
