Brooks launches The BIG 615 radio

Thursday, June 15, 2023 – Garth Brooks launched The BIG 615 radio station from his SEVENS Radio Network today on TuneIn, the live audio outfit.

The BIG 615 offers listeners a variety of artists. "I believe that country music listeners want to hear the latest from George Strait followed by the latest from Luke Combs. The latest from Ashley McBryde followed by the latest from The Chicks," said Brooks.

Storme Warren will be the official voice of The BIG 615. He will partner with Brooks to drive content. Warren will be joined by guest hosts on occasion, including Brooks and other industry stars.

"The BIG 615 station is purely for the love of country music," Brooks said. "We lean a bit more traditional at the BIG 615. We are proud of how the station sounds and want the entire world to hear what we think is the greatest format of all country music."

"Garth Brooks has an amazing vision for radio," said Rich Stern, CEO of TuneIn. "At TuneIn, we are honored to work with an artist like Garth to build his vision and create an unduplicable experience for our listeners. We are even more excited to bring The BIG 615 to our global community of listeners, providing them with a one-of-a-kind destination to immerse themselves in the world of country music."

"I love the fact the station is coming from the home of country music," Brooks said. "Broadcasting from Music Row, the heart of Nashville and country music."

SEVENS Radio is set to launch multiple stations on TuneIn this year, dedicated to country music and more, all curated and conceived by Brooks and the SEVENS Radio Network.

TuneIn has 75 million listeners across 122 countries to amplify country music around the world. TuneIn's technology is integrated into 200 different vehicles and devices, so fans can listen on their phones, smart speakers or in their cars.

To listen, visit or download the TuneIn App in the Apple App Store or Google Play for free.

CD review - Gunslinger If naming your release "Gunslinger," you'd better let it rip and go for a harder country sound, especially if donning a black cowboy hat on the cover. 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. ...
