Garth Brooks chose to reveal the cover and title of his upcoming album to fans last night (Monday, October 17th) during his weekly “Inside Studio G” Facebook series. The project is called Gunslinger, a fact that was initially revealed during this weekend’s SEC Game of the Week on CBS where his song, “Pure Adrenaline,” serves as the theme. Gunslinger will be released on November 25th on his own Pearl Records, Inc.
Garth said, “The album title came to me when somebody asked me what my favorite thing about being on the road was. 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 album’s first single, “Baby, Let’s Lay Down And Dance,” debuted this week at Number 19 on the Billboard Country Songs chart.
