Last night, Garth Brooks shared more details about his upcoming 11th studio album during his weekly “Inside Studio G” Facebook series. Much to the delight of his loyal fans, the country music icon delivered a double whammy— revealing the cover art and album title: Gunslinger.
Enjoy the most recent installment of “Inside Studio G” below!
The album title first appeared during this weekend’s SEC Game of the Week on CBS, where his song “Pure Adrenaline” serves as the theme. The highly-anticipated record will drop on November 25th via Pearl Records, Inc.
The project’s first single, “Baby, Let’s Lay Down And Dance,” debuted at No. 19 on the Billboard Country Songs chart and is the most added song at Country radio this week.“The album title came to me when somebody asked me what my favorite thing about being on the road was,” stated Brooks. “I said ‘It just feels good to be out there being a Gunslinger again. Just aiming with the heart and shooting from the hip, that’s what you do on the stage, right? And, lucky enough, you’ve got the ammo of ‘Friends In Low Places,’ ‘Callin’ Baton Rouge,’ ‘Shameless’ and you do. You’re a gunslinger out there. And each show’s different and you just shoot from the hip all night long.’ As soon I said it, I knew that was the album title right there.”
Garth Brooks’ World Tour with Trisha Yearwood continues on Friday, October 21st with a three-night stretch in Charleston, West Virginia.
