Brooks looks to have "Fun"
Monday, January 21, 2019
– Garth Brooks said "Fun" will be the name of his upcoming studio album.
Brooks revealed the news during "Inside Studio G," a weekly Facebook Live series airing every Monday on his Facebook page at 7 p.m. eastern.
Brooks has already released a honky tonk-styled tune, "All Day Long" and the ballad "Stronger Than Me."
"The title of the album was sparked because making it has been such a fun process to go through," Brooks said. "Being able to go in and out of the studio while being on the tour, working with the same guys, it's been amazing. The album will be available this spring, and I want the fans to just have fun with this because that's what this has been."
Brooks also will go on tour later this year.

And it's quite an undertaking - four CDs of covers - Country Classics, Classic Rock, Blue-Eyed Soul and Melting Pot, an amalgam of country, rock, soul and folk; the two-CD set, "The Ultimate Set" and a DVD of his live performance in Vegas. ...
