Brooks slings it

Friday, November 25, 2016 – Garth Brooks' ultra busy month continued today with the release of "Gunslinger." The disc marks his third release this month. He put out a Christmas disc with wife Trisha Yearwood, "Christmas Together," their first release together. Brooks then put out "The Ultimate Collection," exclusively to Target, a 10-CD set of his material, including "Gunslinger" with two bonus tracks. The standalone version of "Gunslinger" is a 10-song collection produced by Mark Miller. The release covers everything from traditional country, honk tonkers, a reggae/country song and some rockers. Yearwood is featured on the country song "Whiskey to Wine."

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. ...
