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.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
