The following is from a press release:
Amazon Music announced today that Garth Brooks will perform on Amazon Live on Friday, Nov. 20 at 6 PM CST in celebration of his latest release, “FUN”, dropping that day. Brooks will perform a stripped-down set and take questions live from fans on Amazon Live (Amazon.com/live), as well as on Garth Brooks and Amazon Music’s Facebook channels. Fans can purchase FUN and TRIPLE LIVE DELUXE at amazon.com/garthbrooks now, and beginning Friday, “FUN” will be available to stream exclusively on Amazon Music. The entire catalog from the best-selling solo artist in U.S. history, including all 16 albums, is exclusively available to stream on Amazon Music.
“It’s always a joy to play music and i want to thank Amazon Music for this chance to play live and for how they continue to support the music and its creators through both streaming and physical…a rare combination,” said Garth Brooks.
Brooks’ Amazon Music performance will be available by visiting his and Amazon Music’s Facebook channels, as well as on Amazon Live – Amazon.com/live – on desktop, mobile, Fire tablet, or via the Amazon Shopping App on Fire TV. Fans can submit real-time questions for Brooks via the stream’s chat feature on Amazon Live, and on Facebook for an interactive experience. Past artists who have performed for Amazon Music on Amazon Live include Dolly Parton, Keith Urban, Katy Perry, John Legend, Luke Bryan, Dua Lipa, Luke Combs, Tim McGraw, Alessia Cara, deadmau5, and more. Amazon Music and Amazon Live have also collaborated with Brooks to raise awareness for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee; the stream will include a link for viewers interested in learning more about the organization and its work.
The 14 tracked “FUN” features DIVE BAR, the “rowdy” (Rolling Stone) and “anthemic” (Billboard) collaboration with Blake Shelton. Garth and Blake performed the song live for the first time on July 19th, 2019 in Boise, ID. The music video surpassed 30 million views in just five days. The album also includes a cover of SHALLOW with Trisha Yearwood, ALL DAY LONG and STRONGER THAN ME.
Due to fan demand in trying and difficult times, Garth did a digital-only release of 7 tracks from “FUN,” exclusively on Amazon Music earlier this year. On 11/20, the standard album as well as a limited edition physical album with a holographic foil cover will be released. Last year, when asked about “FUN”, Garth said, “The title of the album was sparked because making it has been such a fun process to go through. Being able to go in and out of the studio while being on the tour, working with the same guys, it’s been amazing.”
In addition to music, Amazon Live offers a variety of free live and on-demand programming with new streams added daily, such as at-home workouts with top fitness trainers, cook-alongs with top chefs, Q&A’s with your favorite influencers and authors, and more.
