Garth Brooks, the best selling solo artist in music history, has revealed more details behind his upcoming 11th studio album, Gunslinger, released on November 25th.
This is the second album released since Brooks' return from temporary retirement, following 2014's Man Against Machine.
"The album title came to me when somebody asked me what my favourite thing about being on the road was," he says. "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."
The first single from Gunslinger – "Baby, Let's Lay Down and Dance" – is an upbeat, Nineties country throwback.
