Garth Brooks Releases New Single
Brooks recently released a new single, “That’s What Cowboys Do.” It’s the fifth single off his album FUN. And it shares the perspective of a restless cowboy who falls in love but always has to be on the move.
“But a cowboy’s always got somewhere to go/Another song to sing, another day to save, another rodeo,” the chorus goes. “They’re always leavin’ town, chasin’ sunsets down/It ain’t nothin’ new/Yeah, they’re just passin’ through/That’s what cowboys do.”
Apparently, Brooks almost gave the song away to Midland. But he liked it so much, he revealed on “Inside Studio G,” he decided to record it himself.
“It was written for the boys of Midland because I thought they would kill it,” Brooks recounted. “So I sat down and wrote something for them because they do a lot of George Strait kind of feeling like stuff. And it felt so good, we just did it ourselves.”
Brooks Returns to Playing Stadium Shows
From July through October, Brooks will be playing a string of sold-out stadium shows across the country. According to Brooks’ website, tickets are still available to the July 31 show at Nissan Stadium in Nashville and the Oct. 9 show at Gillette Stadium in Boston.
The July 17 show in Salt Lake City broke ticket sales records. It was Ticketmaster’s fastest stadium sellout in history. And Brooks’ May 3 show at Minneapolis’s U.S. Bank Stadium set a new attendance record for the stadium.
Brooks became one of the first musicians to resume major stadium shows this summer. But he told USA Today last month that he was trying to go about it the right way.
“The thing that’s going to ease your anxiety the most is to know it’s done right,” Brooks explained. “Are these people taken care of when they come in the stadium?”
For his part, Brooks is thrilled to get back to touring. And he has celebrated his recent shows with posts on social media depicting packed crowds. Brooks is plainly eager to see live music return.
“Somebody has got to take the first step,” he said.
