Garth Brooks Drops Two New Songs Off Upcoming Album

Posted on: May 13th, 2020 by brent

Garth Brooks has been promising a new album for well over a year. But even though the project titled ‘Fun’ is not quite ready yet, Brooks dropped two more tracks late Monday night from the project via Amazon Music.

On Monday night, May 11th, another episode of his weekly Facebook show aired. Titled Inside Studio G, Brooks said he didn’t feel right releasing the album in the middle of the pandemic. “I don’t want to be the guy that tries to do something in the midst where everybody is hurting,” Brooks said. “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.”


The two new tracks join previously available songs from Fun, “All Day Long,” “Stronger Than Me” and “Dive Bar,” a duet with Blake Shelton.

Like the title implies, “Party Gras” is an upbeat tune that instantly takes the listener to the Mardi Gras. “That’s What Cowboy’s Do” is a traditional country track that would sound right at home on a record by George Strait, Brooks’ hero.

Check out the two new tracks via Amazon Music.
