Brooks releases new songs
Wednesday, May 13, 2020
– Garth Brooks released two new songs for his upcoming album, "Fun," via Amazon Music.
The songs were "That's What Cowboys Do" and "Party Gras."
Brooks indicated he might release new songs at his Inside Studio G Facebook series on May 11 after a fan named Jack asked Brooks when "Fun" would be released.
"Jack - tell you what we're going to do. We'll get Amazon Music on the phone. You can stream Garth. Let's release half the album on Amazon Music...tonight. Can we do that?"
"We've had this discussion," said Garth. "I don't want to be the guy that tries to do something in the midst where everybody is hurting. So, it's like...damnit. The album's ready to go. It's just how do you get out and promote and be happy and jolly while everybody's out there fighting for their lives not only physically, but fighting for their lives financially."
Brooks already has put out "All Day Long," "Stronger Than Me" and "Dive Bar," the single featuring Blake Shelton, from "Fun." "All Day Long" came out in June 2018.

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. ...
