'The album title came to me when somebody asked me what my favorite thing about being on the road was,' Garth Brooks says in a press release about his 2016 album release, Gunslinger. '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 54-year-old entertainer released the first single from Gunslinger, Baby, Let's Lay Down And Dance, last week. Though the tune is uptempo, it holds a sad story: one of the writers on the track, Kim Williams, died during the recording process.
'I love seeing his names on songs, such a sweet, sweet man,' Brooks says. 'Miss him dearly, but hopefully through music he'll live.'
