For the first time since 2008, there is a new Garth Brooks song playing on country radio!
The singer released "People Loving People" to radio this morning
, ahead of his world tour kick-off in Chicago Thursday night.
For Brooks fans, it's been a long time coming
: The singer released his first album in 1989 and went on to rule the country charts throughout the 1990s. To date, he is still the best-selling album artist in the U.S.
His comeback project, his first studio album since 2001's Scarecrow
, is expected around Black Friday in November.
Brooks's wife, Trisha Yearwood, recently announced her own
return to music, with a plan to release the album PrizeFighter
– her first in seven years – sometime in the near future.
