Nashville, TN – Nov. 25, 2016 – CMA “Entertainer Of The Year” Garth Brooks’ much-awaited studio album GUNSLINGER (Pearl Records, Inc.) is available today. Brooks’ signature penmanship runs throughout the 10-track collection, that ranges from the reflective to the infectious, including the introspective “Ask Me How I Know,“ the poignantly narrated “He Really Loves You,” as well as fiery up-tempo tracks “Pure Adrenaline” and “Weekend,” fitting for the touring showman that Brooks encompasses. GUNSLINGER also includes Brooks’ new single “Baby, Lets Lay Down And Dance” that has instantly connected with country radio and continues to climb the airplay charts, with Rolling Stone highlighting the track’s “timeless sound.”
Fans were able to experience the album ahead of its national release, as it was included on GARTH BROOKS: THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION which debuted this week as the No. one best-selling album with over 134,000 physical copies sold solely through Target, as reported by BuzzAngle Music.
