Country superstar Garth Brooks is gearing up to release his eleventh studio album, and today he revealed that the album will be titled, Gunslinger. Set for release on November 25, the new album will feature lead single “Baby, Let’s Lay Down and Dance,” which was the most added song at country radio this week.
Of the title to his forthcoming album, Brooks shares, “The album title came to me when somebody asked me what my favorite thing about being on the road was,” said Brooks. “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.”
