Brooks has Words With Friends

Tuesday, May 5, 2020 – Garth Brooks has teamed up with Zynga, an interactive entertainment company, and Amazon to bring free content to Amazon Prime members in Words With Friends.

Brooks will promote Words With Friends with original broadcasts and specialized in-game activations. Prime members will also be able to unlock a new Brooks-themed tile style in Words With Friends 2 in the future

As part of the collaboration between Zynga and Amazon Prime, which began on April 27, Prime members can claim free mobile game content, such as mystery boxes and exclusive tile styles, within Words With Friends 2. Players will be shown banners showcasing the offers and can sign in with their Amazon accounts to claim their rewards.

Brooks has an ongoing relationship with Words With Friends that began with the game's 10-year anniversary in May 2019. To celebrate the anniversary, Brooks designed a custom tile style, hosted a series of giveaways and took part in a fireside chat at Zynga's headquarters.

"Throughout my career, I've learned that one of the most valuable things in life is connecting with others. I like working with Zynga and Amazon Prime because I believe games like Words With Friends have the potential to connect people all over the world," said Brooks. "I hope this initiative will help more people foster the important relationships in their lives. Sometimes, a few minutes of play can be as meaningful as a phone call or a letter. It is giving us the opportunity to love one another from a distance."

"Working with Garth Brooks is a true pleasure, and we're thrilled to continue our relationship with this new Amazon collaboration, which brings such amazing rewards to our players," said Bernard Kim, President of Publishing at Zynga. "Now, more than ever, games are an important source of connection and enjoyment around the world, and we believe that teaming with Amazon will give us more ways to surprise and delight our players."

The reality does not exactly match that sentiment for Garth Brooks, but at times he comes mighty close. The high points for Brooks are the three most traditional country songs - a couple of honky tonkers ("Honky-Tonk Somewhere" and "Cowboys and Friends") and a ballad ("Whiskey to Wine"). ...
CD review - Man Against Machine After releasing his debut album in 1989, Garth Brooks released music almost every year until he announced his retirement in 2000. Since then, he has released repackaged hit collections, new music on "Scarecrow" and "The Lost Sessions" and last year's cover song collection "Blame it All on My Roots." Over the years, there have been live recordings, concert and music video collections. The country songwriter became a pop culture icon, transcending genre to become ...
CD review - Blame It All On My Roots - Five Decades of Influences Garth Brooks is back with his first release of "new" material since 2001's "Scarecrow." (Truth in advertising, his "The Ultimate Hits," which actually is part of the new box set, included four new songs back in 2007). 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. ...
