Garth Brooks Launches Digital Music Service, GhostTunes

Garth Brooks has joined the digital music world with the launch of GhostTunes, a digital service he co-founded and which is currently in beta.

The Digital Rights Management-free setup will—like iTunes and Amazon have since 2009—allow its users to put music files on their preferred devices, with one key difference: this site has Garth’s entire catalog, which was previously unavailable for digital download.

And as a pretty amazing introductory carrot to bring people in, Garth’s entire catalog—plus two upcoming albums—are all available as a bundle for the low introductory price of $29.99.

Additionally, users can play their music purchases directly from the site, where it is stored in a virtual locker. GhostTunes also has a plethora of other artists’ albums available for purchase, including Brad Paisley’s forthcoming Moonshine in the Trunk and Miranda Lambert’s Platinum.

Garth’s run of 10 shows at AllState Arena near Chicago starts tonight, Sept. 4.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
