Garth Brooks Comes Out Firing With Upcoming Album, “Gunslinger”

cb18d813ac0a3d98db6eacaf_560x560Garth “Danger” Brooks came out guns-a-blazin’ on his weekly Inside Studio G Facebook series on Oct. 17 by revealing to fans the cover art and title to his upcoming album, Gunslinger, which will drop on Nov. 25. Garth teased the album title on Saturday (Oct. 15) during an SEC football game where his new song, “Pure Adrenalin,” was the theme. The album’s first single, “Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance,” was released to country radio last week.

“The album title came to me when somebody asked me what my favorite thing about being on the road was,” said Garth. “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.”

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.”
