Garth Brooks’ New Album ‘Completes The Circle’
Garth Brooks’ new album, Time Traveler, has found its place in the context of his life and career thanks to its inclusion (and release) in his new Limited Series box set.
Garth said of the seven-disc package, “This is the third and final box set of our career. I like how that completes the circle, the new music tying in. It kind of completes the set, for me, with the old stuff.”
The package is available exclusively at Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s.
Time Traveler, of course, features “Rodeo Man,” Garth’s new hit duet with Ronnie Dunn, as well as a pairing with Kelly Clarkson (“The Ship and The Bottle”), an update of David Allen Coe’s “The Ride” that tells more of the song’s original story, and “Me Without You.”
Those songs join six others on the new album, while Time Traveler joins Man Against Machine, Gunslinger, Fun, and Triple Live inside the new Limited Series set.
Brooks released the new song, “Rodeo Man,” featuring his buddy and fellow Oklahomain Ronnie Dunn. Garth told us of the new song, “I love everything about ‘Rodeo Man,’ from that Quentin Tarantino[-sounding guitar] lick at the start, all the way through the solo. I don’t know, man. Ronnie Dunn’s voice. It’s just fun. And it really, really fits the life of a ‘rodeo man,’ which pretty much is from the time it starts to the time it’s finished. It’s just 100 miles an hour.”
Brooks said, “Ronnie and I knew of each other back in the late-’80s playing all the Oklahoma honky-tonks. Then, of course, how could you miss him with Kix Brooks and him? We were kind of running side-by-side on this. But it’s funny – at this part of both of our careers, getting to sing together is a first, but it is something that is long, long overdue for me.”
