Garth Brooks released his latest album Fun on November 20th, and though not previously mentioned or accounted for previously, the work included 15 tracks as opposed to the 14 that had been promised. The reason for the discrepancy was a track at the 13th spot that included two seconds of dead air.
It’s not that ‘Fun’ isn’t without it’s moments. But Garth Brooks is too much of a cheeseball, and too surrounded by yes men to be given the reigns to produce his own stuff. Or what you get is a record like ‘Fun.’
Leave it to Garth Brooks to figure out how to finagle life to make sure he has some product to place on an end cap come Christmastime. This year it will be a re-release of a live album, and his latest studio album ‘Fun.’
At this point, it’s just as much about the principal as it is the money. Garth’s latest studio album was put up for pre-order as part of his exclusive distribution deal with Amazon nearly two years ago now, on June 19th, 2018 to be exact. Garth said the new record would be released in the spring … the spring of 2019 that is.
There are those highly-anticipated albums that are hinted at for years by artists or labels, yet it seems like it takes forever for them to ever see the light of day, or albums whose release dates keep getting pushed back. And then there’s the very curious case of Garth Brooks and his latest album simply entitled “Fun.”

This is my damn website, and if I want to talk about Taylor Swift, I will. And guess what, you’ll probably read about it.
